Nature Photo Challenge #1

Nature Photo Challenge:
Keeping nature alive around the world, I was nominated by Tina Medrana to be part of the evolving sharing. For 7 days, every picture shared will continue to spin off to new extended horizons from the new nominees designated along the 7 days.

The sowers of life. They can fly thousands of miles and spread the seeds of life. The pollinators of this great planet called Earth. A third of our food supply comes from these species, even medicines that treat us. As their numbers are declining, we should take action by planting flowering plants and by not spraying harmful chemicals. Let them breed so we can breathe!
Today, I nominate Rachel Roxas-Yapchiongco to continue sharing her Nature's discovery. Rachel, it's your turn to keep it moving (please tag me)
Day #1
I was walking to my car after attending a nephew's birthday party when I saw a fence covered with this vine with tiny beautiful flowers. I was intrigued by the geometry involved in the arrangement of petals and pistils. in addition to it's beautiful colors.
How can you not love nature?

It is that time of the year again when we think of falling leaves, turkey on the table accompanied with stuffing and mashed potato and gravy plus, lest we forget, pumpkin pie!  It is also that time when we find gratefulness in our hearts for everything that had happened in our lives.

This year, I am doubly thankful for my grand kids.  Just thinking of them brings lightness in my heart.
I am thankful for our health, hubby's and mine.  Though not so perfect we are still able to do our "apo-stolic" mission.  We are thankful we are still needed and that we can still help in our own little ways.
I am thankful for our sons and their wives for doing good with their own families.  I pray that our Lord continue to shower them with HIS abundant blessings, that they be granted the wisdom to understand and love each other as we have loved them.
I am thankful for our friends - for their thoughtfulness, concerns and kindness.
I am thankful for our families - for their unconditional love.
I am thankful for the all the governments that continuously work  for world peace.
I am thankful I am alive!

I have not blogged for a long long long time and I can't explain why.
I think FB is the culprit.
I need to be more vigilant in putting the drops on my eyes.  They are getting dry and I feel uncomfortable.

The house has become very cold these last three days I had to put on my pj's.
