Fingerprint Friday - Thankful for family

We visited my son Kipp and daughter-in-law Rebecca in Raleigh last weekend and had a wonderful time. It was fun to meet our "Grandcat" Seamus.

We went to a huge arts and crafts festival in Cary on Saturday. There were almost 200 vendors. I enjoyed seeing all the different jewelry booths.

My husband Mike and me.

Rebecca made a delicious dinner - salad and Thai Sesame Noodles - on Saturday night.

Seamus had a problem with his colon last year and had to have surgery. Kipp said his colon was turned into a semi-colon. :) He has to be on a special diet and waits by the dispenser which only spits out the food at certain times. Sometimes he meows at it and tries to get more food out of it, sticking his paw up in it. Kind of funny, kind of pitiful. Mike and I felt sorry for him and if no one was around would open the lid and give him a handful. Shh. Don't tell. (That's what grandparents are for, right?)


There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

Where do you see God's fingerprints? In nature? kids? animals? They are all around us!

I have just visited your blog for the first time and I love it! I am so glad you posted on Etsy. I never knew reading about someone's day to day activities could be so interesting. Maybe I need to change my focus? Thank you.
