Treasured Tuesday

The tender word forgotten, the letter you did not write, the flower you might have sent, dear, are your haunting ghosts tonight...

~Margaret Elizabeth Sangster

Above quote used from these fabulous photographs and quotes on flickr

Thank you

I enjoy this

Yesterday at Bowrings at Windsor Crossings they had their Christmas trees up and I thought of my friend Nia with one tree all decorated with Cupcake ornaments.

Everything is so beautiful indeed.

Although I still feel it is much too early for Christmas things they are out and in abundance.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree(s)?

Love is all you need

~ By Margery Williams ~

"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but Really loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get all loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

I loved Audrey Hephurn and this movie

Happy Sweetest Day

Hats off to Detroit

It would be so sweet if the Detroit Tigers won tonight.
Routing all the way.
Photograph I copied from a posting my son made on Facebook.

My fabulous cousin Wendy and her daughter Erinn amongst the leaves in Northern Michigan.
As my darling cousin Wendy says to me we are jewels to each others eyes.

My Son as a small child amongst the many leaves we always had in our former home
where he grew up.
The sweetest memories to recall.

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. ~Kahlil Gibran

Happy Sweetest Day everyone.

The greatest thing you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

If I had to raise my child over again

If you bungle raising children, anything else you do in life
is of very little significance.

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.

~Diane Loomans, from "If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again"

Go Tigers

Justin and Ahram at a baseball game in Seoul
with their Detroit Tiger Hats on from their visit
in the summer♥

Photograph taken at 4:00 am this morning as I woke up and rejoicing that the
TIGERS won last night♥

Two 90-year-old women, Bertha and Betty, had been friends all of their lives. When it was clear that Bertha was dying, Betty visited her every day. One day Betty said, "Bertha, we both loved playing softball all our lives, and we played all through high school. Please do me one favor: when you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's women's softball there."

Bertha looked up at Betty from her deathbed and said, "Betty, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favor for you." Shortly after that, Bertha died.

A few nights later, Betty was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to her, "Betty, Betty." "Who is it," asked Betty, sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?" "Betty -- it's me, Bertha." "You're not Bertha. Bertha just died." "I'm telling you, it's me, Bertha," insisted the voice. "Bertha! Where are you?" "In heaven," replied Bertha. "I have some really good news and a little bad news." "Tell me the good news first," said Betty. "The good news," Bertha said with joy and enthusiasm, "is that there's women's softball in heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before me are here,too. Even better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always Springtime and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play softball all we want, and we never get tired." "That's fantastic," said Betty. "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's the bad news?" "You're pitching Tuesday." ------- Life is uncertain - Eat dessert first!!
Thanks to my dear friend Roberta for the giggles and love and laughter each day♥

We are all routing for the Detroit Tigers♥

I love this
