The blessing of each day♥

Love my blossoming teas.
Love all of you♥

Treasure the blessing of each day it is a gift.

Just read the book Still Alice very good indeed.
Just picked up Shanghai Girls and am told that too is very good.

Making good progress with my Christmas cards...........
My husband will bring our tree up today and I'll decorate it slowly.
Everyone around us has their trees up and lights galore outside.
My walks are like a fairy wonderland of magic.

Our daughter Kim phoned us last night and they too have their tree up.
Perhaps we all need a little Christmas right this very minute.

"To feel the love of people whom we love is fire that feeds our life.
But to feel affection that comes from those whom we do not know, from those
unknown to us, who are watching over our sleep, and solitude, over our dangers and our weaknesses~that is something still greater and more beautiful because it widens
our boundaries of our being, and unites all living things.
~Paoblo Deruda, from the Childhood of Poetry"

As read in this months O magazine.

Time Passes.....

Life happens.....

Distance separates.....

Children grow up.....

Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes. Men don't do what they're supposed to do......

Hearts break. Parents die. Colleagues forget favors. Careers end.....

BUT.....Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you. A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.....

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.....

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you....or come in and carry you out. Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters.....

Daughter-in-laws, sisters, sister-in-laws, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither would I. When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other.. Every day, we need each other still.
