Leaving a Legacy

I must admit that I become somewhat discouraged when I'm visiting my neighbors in blogland.

So many great thrifters and decorators, and crafters and I merely take a cheap shot at photography and expression.

I try my hand at crafting...

...and this is as good as it gets.
I try my hand at tablescapes...

...and this is as good as it gets.

I try my hand at vignettes...

...and this is as good as it gets.
I try my hand at decorating...

...and I almost burn the house down.

Although, I haven't mastered photography or crafting and I barely know what a vignette or a tablescape is, I enjoy trying.
They (whoever "they" are) say "Practice Makes Perfect."

I'm not sure about perfect, but it will get better.

For now, I'll stick to what I'm the best at...

Being a good Bon-Bon

Loving my family

Living a life of faith that they will want to follow..

And leaving a legacy.

"And you shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you rise up.  And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and on your gates.  That your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heaven are above the earth."  Deuteronomy 11:19-21

So I will choose to thankful for the most important things in life!

What is most important in your life?



  1. Oh do your grandchildren call you Bon-Bon? Many years ago a child in my classroom began calling me Miss BonBon, and it stuck. I have since had siblings of that class who come using the name. I have always said it is what I want my grandchildren to call me. Love it!

    Enjoy your weekend! Bonnie

  2. Oh Bon...this is the sweetest post. I loved seeing your smiling face and your little grandson. What a doll. I loved seeing your family, too!

    I've done what I've done for soooo long now that my heart is now longing to do something different. I want to get back involved in a group ministry...a good Bible study and woman's group. I don't want to teach...just learn!

    Love to you~


  3. Yes, Bonnie, he will call me Bon-Bon. The kids said because of my name and because Bon Bon's are sweet:)
