Appreciation




I've not had a lot of time the past several days to blog or visit as I would like, but thought I would share a few of my favorite photos taken over the past week.  Tomorrow after school we will begin a 5-day holiday as Kuwait prepares to celebrate its National and Liberation Days on the 25th and 26th (which also just happens to be my birthday).  I will be away from the computer for the next week but wanted to stop in to say hello and wish you well.
Thanks always for your kind thoughts and comments.
Blessings to all,

Tammy,

I can't believe your son will be attending college next year in the states. I was so thankful when Janna decided to go to a college less than 1 1/2 hours away... instead of 3 hours away. It will be a big adjustment for both of us as we send off our children. Hopefully you will be able to visit often.

Have a great week away.

Hugs, Sheila

I wonder if you could help me? If you have time, could you pop on over to my blog and give an opinion on my post about blog etiquette? I had a question and I'd love some answers from seasoned bloggers. Thanks so much :)

As always your quotes are so meaningful. We need to take the time to appreciate the everyday things that are so easy to miss...the birds, a sunset and a cresent moon...such lovely pictures. Hope you having a restful time off.

First I want to congratulate you on your birthday. I remembered it today when I sat on the bus and thought I must send you a little message.
And I now see I remembered correctly.

I love the quote and photos in your post. Especially the moon shot. It has been hard to sleep last days due to the full moon...

Hope your day will be a wonderful one!

Bless U!
