Happy Sunday friends! I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but the warm weather didn’t last long and we have had everything from snow to hail and rain this past week. On a positive note, my tulips did bloom! As I put this cold, yucky week behind me, I thought I would share all the good Mitten Moments I did see this week.

My Personal Mitten Moments
Do you remember me telling you that my youngest son recently bought a home? Well, if not, he did and it came with five raised garden beds! He has been gracious enough to let us create a “family garden” We gathered last weekend and worked to gether to get the beds ready.
Stay tuned for some posts on our family garden. I’ll be doing a new series starting next week!
“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.” — Gertrude Jekyll, British Horticulturist
It’s taken me awhile but I just finished the book Confess by Colleen Hoover. I did enjoy it, but now I need something new to read. If you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it if you let me know in the comments below!
It was a joyous week for middle son, his wife and our family! His most recent MRI was good and he won’t need any follow-up for a year! That was the BEST moment of the week, hands down!

Not all my blog posts are about home decor, diy etc. Sometimes, I share what’s on my heart and this week I did just that. I chatted about perserverance and what has worked for me in my life. If you missed it, there’s still time to read The Best Encouraging Advice & Scriptures on Perservance: Overcoming Life’s Challenges.
I hope it encourages you!

Wow, your tulips are awesome. I planted a whole pile last year and not one of them came up. I think it was too warm for them. I can’t wait to see what you do with your son’s garden.
Carol, you wouldn’t believe how many we have and how many have been eaten by the squirrels and rabbits! Thanks for stopping by!
Kim, happy weekend. Praise the Lord, great news about your son! Loved your perseverance post this week, thank you for sharing!
The weather here has been up and down but the opposite of you, it’s been unseasonably hot.
Have a wonderful week Kim!
Thanks, Elizabeth! I’m so glad you enjoyed my post on perseverance. Enjoy that warm weather…I’m still dreaming of it! 🙂
