Sweet is the rest in bearing the cross
Good Morning,
I am in a happy mood this Thursday, and I have a lot of reason for for being happy.
This picture above sits on my desk and brings me many pleasant thoughts  of past days. His name was Scottie, and to me there has never a companion like Scottie, When I worked he was with me, when I was lying in the shade Scottie was there, He is gone now. his grave along with Prince is under the Flag in our back yard
Snowflakes and Dear Ones
Gentle snowflakes fall upon me,
Melting fast upon my face,
There’s no way that I can keep them,
If in my heart they have no place.
Very fragile, very special,
Are these snowflakes from the sky
They remind me of my dear ones,
As they gracefully flutter by.
Scarcely do I see their beauty,
Barely do their rare imprints
Fix themselves upon my fingers,
Till I’m wondering where they went.
In this world so temporary,
Filled with ephemeral things,
Surely everything is fleeting,
Flying ‘way on speeding wings.
Like the snowflakes that are melting,
When they touch my skin so warm,
Yes, myself, my friends, my family,
We’re on that solemn journey home.
Snowflakes can’t be kept in bottles,
You can’t grasp them as they fly,
You just have to dearly love them,
As they slowly flutter by.
We cannot keep what can’t be held,
And just as snowflakes disappear,
Often on life’s lonely landscape
We’re deprived of what is dear.
Yet no one really leaves us,
Though we’re far, so far apart,
As long as we believe in snowflakes,
And keep them always in our hearts.

Good Morning DAD...

Did you know it is snowing here in the northeast? Yes beautiful snowflakes cover the trees and the ground and continue to fall outside my windows. Watching the snow fall at the same time I am reading Mary's wonderful poem makes both more beautiful.

I hope you and Mary have compiled a book of your poems to give as very special gifts to your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many friends.

Love the photo of you and your Scottie. It is actually your love of Scottie that guided you to Misty and Sara and then onto me. What a special and faithful friend in life and in death.

The hot coffee is waiting to warm you on this chilly day. Enjoy the coffee, enjoy the Prince charming, and enjoy an afternoon of poetry.

Sweet picture of you and Scotty. You can tell who loves their pets. I noticed on the animal site where you click to donate food for the shelter on the front today they had a picture of a 15year old dog that when his owner passed away the family took him to a shelter. He really didn't look that old. Made me so sorry for him. You would think some family member would have taken him. He was so pretty. Makes me almost cry when the animals are left behind not know what is happening to them. Helen
