Sorry I'm so late . . .

So I'll make it short and painless . . .

The world is such a wonderful place and this goes in my grateful journal today. A blogger friend I follow named Elaine made these for me. She had made some and had posted them on her blog. All I did was tell how how cool there were (and I wish I knew how to do it) and she made these for me.

I really don't know where she got the saying she put on there - it's about me - so somewhere on my blog. But if there is ONE THING I want for all of is and my blog is for that purpose is ~


It kind of blew my mind and I had tears of joy - seriously - if you knew how important I feel this is - for all of us - whew.

And this one is again about me. The Wizard of Oz - Dorothy traveled and looked everywhere for what she needed - when all she needed she had - in her own back yard.

And the joy of Mama Mia.

It's A Wonderful Life - again he didn't know what all he had until he lost it.

We all have what we need - within. We just need to find it and accept it.


Remember the other day when I asked y'all what the picture was of the rows of color - it was tulips:

Thoughts for the day (night) lol.

“For every day that there is sunshine, there will be days of rain, it's how we dance within them both that shows our love and pain. ” Joey Tolbert - poet

"Meditate, engage in daily prayers, read uplifting books, commune with Mother Nature--in some way try to remove yourself from the discord of the everyday world that invades your sense of inner peace." - Stephen R. Covey

Hey Sandie!

That is so sweet! Your friend Elaine is very talented!

I would had never thought of tulips looking like that in a field. That is neat!


Ginny said...

I'm later than you today!!! Been out collecting fun times for upcoming blog posts, not much pretty weather left! YES!! When we are too hard on ourselves, we need to ask ourselves "If this was your good friend, would you be this hard on her? Wouldn't you comfort and forgive her?" Of COURSE we would!! Yet we're not as kind to ourselves as we are to our friends. We are our own worst enemies. To quote Pogo "We have met the enemy, and he is us!"

If I lived anywhere near those big, colorful tulip fields, I'd be out there picnicing nearby every would be like living on a rainbow!

What a sweet thing your frined did when she made those two thoughtful collages about you, Sandie.

I have finally learned to relax and stop and smell the roses and commune with nature every day - several times a took a long time, but I guess I'm a slow learner ;-)

God bless you, my friend,
Doris and Gizzy

Nice post...all ok in G-A?

Wow - You must have been thrilled by these great gifts ... what a talent!
... and isn't Blogland such fun, where we can play "Show and Tell" just like in grade school. (I wonder if they still do that?)

Love the bittersweet picture. Bittersweet is so hard to find these days. I want all I can get my hands on!

Hugs, Cheryl

That was so nice of Elaine, the pictures sure are nice, and the messages they carry are great.

It's so true, everything we need to make us happy is inside of us.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

And also, those rows of tulips look like a painting, don't they? Such beauty! Thanks for always sharing such pretty, funny, interesting, etc. posts!

These are the words that spoke to me today-- from you.

Your friend made some beautiful cards... almost as beautiful as your spirit and the way you make others feel. I may not be on here much lately, but I think of you often and smile... :)

Guess what my word verification is... "cramp" LOL
