Always Remember The Reason Why

Jess and someone special in her life....

I am holding you as a baby

We are sitting on the swing at the old farmhouse. Probably 15 years ago. Grandma loved wearing sundresses and going barefoot...

Remember the reason
you write and post images

You find such joy in this late life venture
and people of all ages, walks of
life that are far and near
seem to enjoy reading about

One Woman who built a cottage at the
edge of the woods and returned to her
much loved land
in her last years

It is for your children and grandchildren
that you write

An opportunity for them to know
what is happening in
in your life

A chance for them to know you
a little better

The written word reveals so much
From the Heart

A gift received
letter from my
oldest granddaughter

my heart is smiling



That snowy picture of the angel is so beautiful - I always think of you when I see angels because I still remember as a little girl you showing me all your angel statues in the house and garden. Stay warm and well !

Love you,

I wept at today's vintage of wise and thoughtful words.

During my spiritual direction coursework, I learned how we are led to heart's truth when we "follow the tears."

And gosh, that's just how I feel; Ernestine, your works hit home in deep way. And I'm grateful.

Jess is so pretty and the photo of the two of you is such a wonderful picture. I know you cherish photos just as I do. My only grandchild is 3! I have a long time before he is grown up.
