"Thank You" Just Isn't Enough

I have had a difficult last couple of weeks... if I want to be honest! Just feeling overwhelmed, over emotional, over tired, over grouchy... and needing a change. Jon called his Mom last week, and she was here in a day and a half to lend a hand! Her help this past week has been amazing. The title of this post says it accurately... thank you is NOT enough!

On Tuesday, I was told to go out and do whatever I wanted for the evening. It took me awhile to think of what to do... but I decided to just grab my camera, head through the Tim Horton's drive through, and go for a drive! AHHHHHHHH! With each passing minute I felt myself relax more and more. I can't explain it, but it felt SO GOOD to be out of the house!

The sunset behind our place...

The lake near where we live...

I grew up in the flatlands, and I live in the flatlands... but boy, do I miss the mountains of Wyoming at times!! These cloud formations appear often, and when they do... I sometimes pretend they are mountains in the distance!

As the moon came out... I decided it was time to head on home!

And this is what was awaiting me... my mother in law cuddled up with my little sleeping beauty!

What beauty indeed.


  1. Beautiful pictures Renee! Praying for you!

  2. glad you could be refreshed. glad you have a mother-in-law who blesses you.
    was randomly thinking last night as i lay in bed late unable to fall asleep...that we should come visit you sometime. just a thought. let me know if you ever want a visit to lancaster county! we have a bed and breakfast - the breakfast is probably more impressive than the bed...but we could make the food worth your while : )

  3. Hoorah for great mother-in-laws! Mine deserves an extra jewel or two in her crown!
