Five Things Friday ~ #7

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have 
~ Frederick Koenig ~

I continue my Five Things Friday... #7.  

#1) Our view as we sat on the front porch relaxing and watching the world pass by after a short bike ride ~ The serenity and peace is difficult to describe with words...

#2) The time with the grand-daughters and their Momma was a blessed time!  We so much enjoyed the time that we forgot pictures... but here is some artwork that Emma and "Kampa" created.

#3) The stack of finished quilts ready to be sent to their new owners...

#4)  The beginning of the fall 2016 Bible Study and the opportunity to reunite with some old friends as well as a few new ones.

#5)  Early morning drives on the way to spend the day with some of our favorite people and the ability to watch God's art transform...

I have linked up with Amanda over at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co... head on over there and see what others are happy about.  

And don't forget to tell me what happy moments stand out in your week!

Happy Friday!
