I Have a Dream -Postcard Friendship Friday #440




I was ten years old when Martin Luther King was assassinated.  Even at that tender young age, this great man captivated my imagination.

I loved him.  His dream became mine, too. I have always been captivated by his inspiring words.  Especially these:  "I have a dream... ...that little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers."

Growing up, my parents taught us a great truth--that people are people no matter what color their skin is...that God made human beings like flowers, in all shapes, colors and sizes--and they are all beautiful.

Blessings and peace to all peoples and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

Stand and Deliver Your Heart!



Now this is a masked bandit I would LOVE to meet!  Isn't this cherub the picture of cuteness and determination?

Happy Valentine's Day!  Have a GREAT week!

To my Sweetheart


I adore Valentine's Day postcards.  The artists of old had a beautiful way of illustrating the whimsical feeling of that tradition.

Though Valentine's Day makes me sad sometimes--my Beloved is no longer here--I still love the work of those fabulous vintage artists!

Have a GREAT day, sweet Friends!

To the One I love -Postcard Friendship Friday #439



It is getting close to Valentine's Day already.  It is a little more than a month away.  I used to love that holiday, but it has been a sad one for me since my Beloved flew away to heaven.

This year I am going to do something a little nutty.  I'm keeping the Christmas tree up with its lights--putting away the Christmas ornaments.  I am going to decorate the tree with valentines and hearts, then I'm inviting all my nieces and nephews to come over for the weekend.

We will eat Valentine's Day cake, enjoy some fun games, sing and play instruments and best of all, laugh together.  I think this is the perfect solution for Valentine's Day.  It will become a new tradition.  :D

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Happy New Year! -Postcard Friendship Friday #438




Happy New Year!  As I get older the years seem to go by more and more quickly. I can still remember when I was a child, summer lasted at least two years.

This postcard tickles my funny bone a bit.  That holly leaf dress must be incredibly prickly!  

Today I am thanking the Lord for His kindness and compassion over the past year, which has been one of great struggle.  I believe I am on my way back to strength and peace.  For that I am grateful.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the new year holds!

Happy New Year and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
