Saturday Meditations . . . short and sweet





A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
- Erin Majors



Try to be a light for someone else. I think it is like a smile - ever try to give one away? You can't - it comes right back.

Hi Sandie...There's definitely frost on the ol' pumpkins here tonight, too. Brrrrrr Day was lovely, though, with bright sunshine.

Loved the short and sweet post. It was charming. Susan

So cute!

I am still celebrating with you the birth of your new grandbaby! YEA! And I also wanted to drop by and tell you how much I appreciate not only your very kind comments on the roast, but how much I appreciate YOU!. Love you much, my friend. I keep hoping that I will get up to Georgia to meet you, or that you will get to this part of Florida to meet me. Either way, I eagerly look forward to it.

Love you...

XO,

Sheila :-)
