Sunday thoughts and pictures

Here we are, another Sunday evening. I have been thinking all day about what I wanted to say tonight. What to share with you. And I realized something. When I started these Sunday posts I would usually share with you other blogs that have inspired me. I haven't done that in a while. So, tonight I am.

Here we go!

First, We have the post "Deafening Silence" by Justin Mathai. Justin is a fellow contributing author to The Falling Skies Blog, and has an incredible talent with words. I wish I had a tenth of his talent.

Next, let's click on over to Daisy's Bits and Pieces and read her post about Lent. I'm not Catholic, so I don't know too much about Lent, other than you are supposed to give up something. This post was really interesting and informative. It made me see the Lenten Season (I learned a new word!!) in a whole new way.

And finally we have my wonderful friend Violet over at My Purple Dreams. She writes a weekly thankfulness post that I always look forward to reading. And then there is her Acts of Kindness posts that she dedicates to the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting. And as if that weren't enough to make you click over, she also writes some wonderful, insightful, and sometimes painful posts about dealing with depression and PTSD.

I could keep this list going, there are so many wonderful blogs out there that I love reading. But I am going to stop here so as not to overwhelm you with awesomeness! :)

Now, how about some pictures?

OH! I almost forgot! I wanted to show you what I got in the mail this week!

Back at the first of the month Jerimi over at My Antidepressant Life offered to send out Valentine's cards to anyone who was interested. Of course, I was interested. And this week I got this:

 Isn't it great!?! This little card definitely brightened my day!

Also back at the beginning of the month I saw a post over at Growing Unique about a painting that she (Rennata) had put on Ebay. It was a beautiful, tiny (2.5 inches x 3.5 inches) little thing. And I fell in love. So I bid on it. And I won it. It came in the mail yesterday.

Isn't it lovely?
Okay, that's it for today. I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. I'm lucky, I have tomorrow off too for President's Day. If you do too, enjoy it! :)
