Hearty Wishes -Postcard Friendship Friday #391


I apologize for getting this up late.  I am in the grips of the dreaded flu bug they've been talking about on the news.  It seems to hit everyone differently.  For me it is a fever and the ensuing aches and pains, along with a sore throat.  I am on the upside, having been ill for about a week.

I hope you are all doing well,  Blessings and health to you dear ones.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Great Secret -Postcard Friendship Friday #390


This is a Valentine's Day postcard picturing two sweet friends.  One wonders what secrets they are sharing.  Friends have always been a wonderful part of my life, and I am blessed to be in touch with some of my friends from the earliest days of grade school.

Valentine's Day has been a difficult time for me since my Beloved flew away to heaven.  Yet, one of the greatest gifts as a result that loss are the wonderful women, fellow widows, whom God has brought into my life.

They are sisters of the dearest sort.  I am SO blessed and grateful for each of my sisters.  Especially for Wendy.  This card is dedicated to our sweet sisterhood and the deep friendship we share.

Have a lovely week, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Joyous New Year to You! -Postcard Friendship Friday #389

Hello, sweet Friends.  I love this postcard.  It is from my cyber collection and does not have a back I can upload for you.

I sometimes have dreams where I am flying above the trees, winging my way through the air with the birds.  This postcard reminds me of those wonderful moments.  I think that is the way it will be in heaven--I am SURE we will be able to fly just like this.

It is 2018 now--I am looking forward to the adventure ahead--both with anticipation and joy and a little dread.  The uncertainty of our world is a burden upon my heart at times--yet I trust God with the unknown future of this beautiful place He made.

Blessings and joy to you this New Year, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Happy New Year!


I adore this wonderful postcard.  The grace and beauty of these horses, the children and animals makes my heart dance.  What a lovely way to bring in the New Year.

Happy New Year, sweet Friends.  May God bless you with more than you could dream of or want.  You are in our prayers, dear ones.

No More Wasted Time


A few nights ago, I was listening to a program called Decades. They were talking about the life of the late David Cassidy. His sweet daughter said this man's last words were, "So much wasted time."

That hit me hard. I don't want to be wasting my time here on earth--I would be devastated to look back and realize how much time I let slip through my fingers.

So...the next morning I found the Christmas lights I'd meant to put up for the holidays--and strung them around the front porch. It sounds silly--but somehow it made sense to accomplish that goal--even if I was a day or so late. Those lights will be shining all year round, by the way. (grin)  

Then I put a sweeper flap on the front door.  Something I've never done before, but which had needed to be done a long time ago.  I had a curious sense of fulfillment.   

I see this newest heart shift is going to change things in my life.

 No more wasted time.

A Happy New Year -Postcard Friendship Friday #388


Last year I was alone New Year's Eve.  I opened the front door and stood on the front porch waving Fourth of July sparklers.

Toez the Polydactyl Cat did NOT appreciate all of the Hullabaloo and hid under the blanket on the sofa.  As for me, I enjoyed the neighborhood pandemonium.  This year there will be a party here!  I'm excited.  It is the first time since my Beloved flew away to heaven.

I don't know what this New Year will hold, but I pray I will be a blessing to many in what God has called me to do.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday and Happy New Year, dear Friends!  Look Up, for God is watching over us with His great love and kindness.

Christmas Memories


I just had a Christmas memory flash.  In past years, my family and I would often end up traveling home from performances we'd done during the holidays.

Driving over the snowy mountains at Christmas time, Alan would pull over and the kids and I would tie treats we'd made for the animals onto the fir trees.  The treats consisted of pine cones rolled in peanut butter and seeds.

Such laughter and fun. There were snowball fights and, as I recall, hot chocolate from a thermos when we were done. What a lovely memory that is. I miss those long ago adventures.

Merry Christmas, dear Friend!

Song of the Morning -Postcard Friendship Friday #387


This beautiful Christmas postcard touches something whimsical in my soul.  This lovely maiden, floating through a meadow of flowers with her harp is so different than most Victorian Christmas postcards.

The title, Song of the Morning is a fitting title for this beautiful young woman in a spring meadow...at Christmas.

Thank you for dropping by.   Merry Christmas, sweet Friends.  And Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Round John Virgin -Postcard Friendship Friday #386



This wonderful vintage postcard brings back so many memories of the old nativity set I loved as a child, which still graces the home of my sweet Mumsie.  

In our growing up years, each Christmas Mom would write a play.  Christmas Eve, I and my five siblings would perform for neighbors, friends and family.  As a part of the drama we would sing Silent Night.  It was our favorite Christmas song. 

Then one late evening, our youngest brother, who was around four years old, asked Mom, "Who is Round John Virgin?"  Which, of course, sent us into transports of laughter.

Since that long ago Christmas day, a little round tin man, who goes by the name of Round John Virgin, sits next to Joseph, Mary and the Christ Child.  I still giggle a bit over that wonderful old memory.  

Thank you for dropping by and taking a moment to walk with me down memory lane.  Merry Christmas, dear ones.  And Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
