Cynthia, Thanks for My Award!!!

I received an award today from Cynthia over at Muse Swings. I feel very honored and this is an award she created herself. Visit her blog and I think you'll really like it. This is for folks that are newcomers and I just realized today that this is my 76th post. Time has gone so fast. I would never have dreamed this activity could make me so happy.

Going back to work the first day after vacation has been so challenging. I didn't get out until 8:30pm and I feel like I need to get to bed early tonight. Did you ever go on a trip and you just didn't want it to end? That's how I felt. I will be talking about things from the trip from time to time and when I get the pictures ready I will be sharing them.

We got to go into the old church that I grew up in. It is now an Hispanic church and I went to the office and asked if we could look around. It was so thrilling. I felt like I was truly dreaming. My daddy's funeral was in that church. As a baby I was dedicated at the front of that church. My parents and I spent so much time there. Up until the time I was fourteen and we moved to Florida, I spent every Sunday morning, night and Wednesday night in that church. My basic belief system was developed at that church. I was so glad the church is still operating. The Good News is still being preached.

I will be happy to see how my pictures turned out and I will share as soon as possible. I hope everyone will have a wonderful week.

Is it not fun to take those walks back down memory lane? I just returned from Manitoba...and a visit to the farm where my mother grew up.

I've noticed lately that memory lane just keeps getting longer and longer. But it's always a nice place to visit!

The award looks good over here!

Welcome back Trish! My life is a little strange as I never moved away from the same block here in Brooklyn that I grew up on -- I bought a house 30 years ago that is 7 houses away from my Mom's. So all my life has been spent practically in one place! I've seen changes, both good and bad, but that is life!
Glad you got to see your old church and reminisce.
