Celebrate Small Things and A to Z Challenge: J, K, L

So sorry I was missing in action. Again. I've been gone visiting my daughter and believe it or not, we got snowed in! In April. The middle of April. Yikes!

My daughter lives 24 hours away from me, so when I get the opportunity, I will spend as much time with her as possible.

Also, we just found out that a very, very dear friend passed away yesterday. He was a WWII vet in the South Pacific and he was so precious to us. He was 92 years old and lived such a wonderful life. He was a hero I will miss him dearly. He lives up here where we are visiting, so we plan to go to his funeral before we return home.

So, again, I'm posting a small post. So sorry you beautiful guys and dolls! I promise to get back to my regular scheduled posting by the end of next week.

I am thankful I had a few extra days to visit my daughter, even in the snow.
I am thankful to have known such a wonderful person as Glade Lindsay.

For the A to Z challenge, here's what I'm saying for letters J, K, L:

Don't JUMP ship. Stay with it. Never quit. There is no place for quitters.
Instead, KICK it in the rear and determine you will finish. Be faithful and it will come to pass.
Because you LOVE it, it makes it easier to stay with it until the end.

Thank you Vikki for hosting the blog hop and I'm sorry I missed yesterday's posting!

Thank you Mathew and Alex for introducing me to the A to Z challenge and for letting me participate!
