A Window...

 
 There is a saying...
 
When a Door Closes,
a Window Opens...
 
I have heard this a lot lately...
 

for you see,
 
last Fall my husband left...
 
he just went to work
and never came home again...
 
I was happy,
he said he was happy...
 
I never saw it coming...
 


 
the seasons,
have been a mirror
of my soul...
 
the Winter
 was cold and dark...
 
this Spring
as the ground thawed
so did I...
 
The garden began
to stir,
as did I
 





 
the garden is now filled
with beauty,
with fragrance...
 
with my hands deep in the soil...

the earth awakens me,
it will heal me...
 

 
I am looking
out the window a lot these days...
 
 I see Sunshine
I see Bright Blue Skies..
 
It is time
 to Open the Window...
 
I will be fine...
 
 ......
 A million hugs to all of you
 who have sent me well wishes...
 
you have no idea
 how much they have meant to me...
 
I'm always so happy you stop by...

A Droopy Dogwood Bouquet...

Happy New Week...
 
I am just popping in with a few photos, 
of my Droopy Dogwood centerpiece...
 
I love the clean simplicity of it...
 


 
we have had the coldest wettest weekend...
 
I stayed in
snuggled up
editing my stockpile of photos from the Spring...
 
I have so much to share
with you...
 
 
 Hope Your New Week is Great!

Hi..
Yes,  I know I have been gone forever, 
I miss you all so much...

how much I appreciate all the wonderfuly encouraging e-mail I receive...
honestly,
 I feel the love!
 
My life is changing here
and I will share more about that when I can...
 
The garden is popping,
there are plump buds on the roses already
and I will have photos to share soon...
I even went on vacation California
 and have some fun photos of that to share too...
