"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

  8. I love the yellow rose AND the quote. How fortunate for the world that Annie Sullivan was able to unlock the door to that beautiful mind and give voice to her words and thoughts.

    That is amazing.

  9. Jojo,

    This is an awesome post. The rose if beautiful and so is the sentiment.

    Thank you for your comments on my post tonight.

    It is still frigid here, but warming tomorrow, possibly to single minus digits. Still cold, but not as bad. There is a wind tonight that bites to the bone.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  10. You nailed it on the honey mustard skin with pepper freckles!

    We had a really rough evening (two sick kids). Thanks for giving me a laugh to make it through to the morning.

  11. Not always easy, not always possible, and parts of us could never be changed, but the path we are on can be altered but only if we want it to.

    Enjoy your weekend jojo!

  13. So true. In the absence of hope, all we have is fear really.
