Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real ~ March 21st

Good morning, friends and welcome to my little spot on the web today!

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~ 
Thanks to Like Mother, Like Daughter for hosting.

Thursday, 3/14

Our red eared slider, otherwise known as 
"My little sweetie pie," "Cutie Patootie," or "Our baby," has  personality!
She swims to the edge of the tank 
 ( set up in the sunny dining room) when we gather to eat, stares at us and begs for treats by 'standing' on 'hind' legs/paws. 
She falls asleep in the palms of our hands, too.
Who knew reptiles could be so lovable/cute/hilarious?

Thanks for understanding...

As real as it gets.

 The video my son created for our diocesan Respect Life committee.
 In this culture of death in which our children are being raised,
 youth who have a heart for life, from conception to natural death, are our future.
They will be the voice of the pro life movement.
And thank God for them.
Please, enjoy his creation.
My husband and I find it touching and heartfelt.
Real and relevant.

Thank you for stopping by,  friends.

Until next time,
