Dear Daughters: There Are Always Roses

Roses in my Garden 2015

My Roses Spring 2015

Dear Daughters,

Thank goodness there are always roses to grow ,
or a meal to prepare, or a friend’s particularly good advice to absorb, or an errand to run, or Leaves candles to burn, or a flea market to frequent.

You have your own list, I know.

These are the creative and necessary duties of life that distract us (in the most positive way possible) when our worry threatens our peace.

I am a great fan of distractions.

I imagine your Great Grandmother Mills’ list included things like hanging clothes on the line, or sweeping the kitchen floor, or working in her garden, or acts of kindness.

So don’t judge your postponement of worry time when other things call.

Just enjoy them.

I love you, and you have been my greatest distraction,

Awww, that is so sweet! It reminds me of when my own daughters apologize for not calling or visiting because they are so busy with their own kids, jobs and chores. Beautiful!

I'm applauding!
and smiling.
I kid you not, I visited a hand-full of blogs this evening and saw many comments from you on those blogs (yes, we travel in the same circles)
I thought, I need to pop over.
IMAGINE my surprise...when I clicked over to my Own BLOG... and there you had left me a kind note.

happy to see you post (and a Dear Daughters too!)

enjoy your weekend.
I finished now. ;)
