Adding Sunshine



and adding hugs


... make lots of smiles ...

A thank you to my family and friends for all the
tender loving care
you add to my life every day

The thoughtful comments you take time to write
and the  lovely cards sent my way
are sweet reminders
of God's beautiful love in the world.

So cute...and blessings on your new adjustment as you release one to fly solo! You have given roots and now you have given him wings.

How was the diner party for Jason last Sunday, Maria? Good food and many smiles? I saw the picture of your children on fb, they are all very beautiful!
I hope you are having a lovely week so far. I will take place on my wooden chair to feel the sun on my face ..
Lots of love xxxx

Ahhh...you do have a way with words...and your images today are full of LOVE. I have missed you so very much. This recovery business is taking SOOO long...I am getting old. There is a list of "to do's as long as my arm, that I am itching to conquer. Soon, very soon. Hoping all is well and you are ready to enjoy the upcoming warm weather. Sending many hugs...love Rosie

Always love to visit you on your blog . Always so peaceful .
My oldest daughter Anna is visiting from France for a few days . She sang at a choir when she lived overhere and they have a performance next sunday she participates for the last time .
Requiem from Brahms .
Today she and her sister Elisabeth are shopping together . That will be a lot of fun . I'm looking forward to them coming home and show me everything !
Elisabeth is going on holiday within 2 weeks with 3 girlfriends to NewYork and LasVegas and Curacao for 20 days . She is SO EXCITED . I'm too ....for her !
Hope our children will all be safe and happy so we can enjoy for many many years to go !
All the best sweet friend !

Wishing you sunshine and sending hugs for you this weekend, Maria. Enjoy some rest and hopefully some fresh air! (I had to laugh at my little grandson, Jack, when he was with me over spring break. He was sick, so I had to keep him inside for several days. Finally, on the morning of the 4th day, he said, "It's been a really long time since I've had any fresh airs, Grammy!")
