My transition from cluttered to simple living.

A new beginning...

Today I attended the birth of a new grandson. Can anyone really describe the emotions felt at hearing that first cry? Is there anything really better than this? Everything...all other experiences...seem to pale in comparison. What possibly can be more thrilling than a new arrival?

Our children and our grandchildren are our greatest trust...our greatest gift....our great treasure....our future...our hope. They are the rainbow after the storm... They are proof positive that life goes on....that life is good.

We welcome you, little one, as we welcome, and look forward to the arrival of your little cousin this fall. Life IS good.
