A Glad New Year -Postcard Friendship Friday #252

Years ago, my darling Grammie gave me this wonderful postcard.  Today as I read the beautiful poem on the front, it feels like her special blessing over my life.  Especially in light of my grief over the recent loss of my husband.

Above is the note Grammie wrote.  I treasure this beautiful old postcard and the words she used--especially "love you."  My Grandmother was one of my best friends and I still miss her so much.

When Grandpa was a young man, Millie was one of his good buddies.  I wish I could have known her.  Grammie and Grandpa loved her very much.  She died  young and they treasured her things.  So when Grammie sent this postcard to me--I knew right away what a privilege it was for her to send me this precious bit of their lives.

As days unfold like
Opening Flowers
Throughout the 
Coming year,
May each one bring its
Golden hours,
And some joy fair and dear.

Happy New Year, dear Friends--and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

I'm sorry I've been missing so long, Beth. Computer troubles continue. I hope you are well, or as well as can be expected. My thoughts are with you.
