Grammie's Orange Flowers

I was delighted to find these wonderful old fashioned flowers near my home.  They are so sweet.  The bees love them, too.  I have many good memories associated with these flowers.  They grew around Grammie's pond and were one of her favorites.

I can almost hear the voices of my siblings and me echoing back through time...

Have a lovely day.

Sun Sparkle

Though the day is beautiful and there is hardly a cloud in the skies.  I find my heart is sad.  Perhaps it is in response to the lull after all our Easter Activity.  I had the joy of working with a group of young people whom my husband and I had mentored in drama over the years.

This Easter, Dramatic Difference Ministries, and Scarlet Chord  Theater put Alan's drama, When I am Free onstage for the first time.  We performed it three times over the weekend and it was a great success.  I loved hearing the comments of those who saw the play.  I know Alan would have been so pleased.

My darling had talked about that drama--describing it, working on it, for over 20 years.  But unfortunately, he left this life too soon to see his dream come true. 

There is much to be done for other upcoming projects, but today I am sad at heart.  I miss Alan.  I wish he could have seen that drama--I would have loved to hear his comments and watch his face.  I even wonder if somehow he knows about the on-going impact he made in so many lives.

In the meantime, I'm looking for those sparkles God puts into the day.  I know they are there.

God bless you, sweet Friends.  You are always close to my heart and in my prayers.
