A Beautiful Fence.....


I am so excited to share this particular fence with you  today!!  



Do any of you recognize it?  

This is the "Healing Garden" at Children's Hospital in Dallas, Texas........

It is truly a beautiful place and it offers amazing Peace as you listen to the water passing over the rocks at the garden river.


This young man, is the reason that I have walked this garden......week after week.....for about three and a half years!

Tucker is our second grandson and at the age of 8, he was diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia.   We honestly spent an enormous amount of time at the hospital and the clinics.



Here is Tucker's "Beads of Courage" necklace......

The hospital did not start the program of  beads until Tucker's third year of treatment.   Each bead represents some type of treatment that these kids go through, whether it's a blood transfusion, surgery, spinal tap, chemo, or radiation....
  
As you can see.....even in Tucker's third year of treatment, he received several beads.   There is NO WAY for me to be able to tell you just how much these kids go through ..... in their journey to be healed.




 This is Tucker......today.....age 16.  He is healthy and super handsome!   He does have Type 1 diabetes, caused by  damage from his chemo....But for the most part......he handles it very well.  He loves life and Golf is the sport he enjoys!


I am so thankful for the care that Tucker received at Children's Hospital...... I will never forget the many hours spent....walking around this place.....praying and asking God for a HIS healing powers to touch, not only Tucker....but every kid in that hospital....

It is a BEAUTIFUL FENCE!!

I'm joining Good Fences today.....



A fence can be mended to look new again.....
 Our Bodies can be made whole, by God's healing hands......

Hugs to each of you....

Drops of Rain.

Rainy weather again, here in East Texas....Very cloudy... the temps are rather mild at the present time....HOWEVER, a Winter storm is on the maps, and it's heading for us!


Seems that Fall is still hanging around as well....No matter how many times the yard is cleaned....a few of the leaves find their way onto my porch!!  This one is going to be stranded for a few days...at least, until the rain goes away!


Don't you know, that it's a "Cool" 
thing to have Christmas lights in your back yard?  Sam strung these on a wire for me and they surround a portion of our back yard.  I liked them so much, that I decided to leave them up year round.  


This bird bath sits outside our bedroom window and I so enjoy watching, not only the birds, but the squirrels as well....as they drink and play in this area.



This clover will more than likely be covered with ice before tomorrow morning!!  

That's TEXAS weather for you!!


A daffodil bloom that needed a BATH.

Hmmm.  I wonder how it got there?
Did some tiny little hands pick it?
Perhaps a squirrel pushed it into the rain puddle!?   

Take time to notice the "Simple" things in life!!

Blessings,
