Good morning Erin! I wanted to leave an inspiring message for you to start your day:
Salutation to the Dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Here's one photo I caught just unexpectedly about the year ago. Weddings can really be great. One week ago there were the people from the wedding by the road when we went to town. And there, where I parked the car was the next one also bride's and the grooms car. Yes, there really is the magic in this moment.
This is one of the favorites in my garden. While working as a rose gardener there ware some "Caramella" roses, that carried some light flowers, this one has only the light flowers. That's why I bought it to myself. With best wishes, -Silja
Well, thank you, Erin, I thought I had offended alot of crones since I my post sat there so long without a reply. It is a big relief to have somebody I respect, like yourself, to see the humor. You know I did not connect the Southern "good ol' bubba with my grandmother, which we pronounced as "Booba". She was a schoolteacher and a wonderful wife of "Pad", who she loved dearly as she loved me. Thanks again for your sweet feedback, ron
Are you saying over 1000 friends for Jen? I'm sure it will be dealt with---but dang a 1000, lol.
Now, if this wasn't what you meant, you must forgive me---I think my brain is just about to crash. ;-)
How are you? I am glad I am finally in Germany. It took a lot of energy to get here. Many beautiful hiking trails and gardens in the town I am in. I went on a long hike tonight and the sunset was around 9 ish very late.
