leaf hunters we come

we really have fun

it’s only once a year

but it is dear..

to a lady like me

who likes to see

the seasons of change

as they are not the same..

verena’s a great hostess

and she makes the most

of a special time

and Lord willing..

we’ll meet again

next year, online…

So Sweet of You

DSCN9779

I want to say hello and thank you to new readers here at Words Like Honey. I appreciate that you take time to stop, visit and like what I share…I continue to strive for balance in my day, so I have tried to cut back a bit on my time spent at WordPress. I am not sure that it is working..lol! I so enjoy the community of artists, photographers and writers that I have come to know. We recently visited, what has become one of our favorite places to have lunch. I can actually say that on that day, I did not indulge on any of their delicious sweet treats. I will make up for it perhaps in October or November.. (:

weekly photo challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth

DSCN1838It is not length of life, but depth of life..

        Ralph Waldo Emerson

The weekly photo challenge for this Friday is Depth. My take on it has to do with the character of people, some are shallow and some are deep. As I viewed this photo, I saw friendship, or perhaps they are sisters, or mother and daughter, I feel as though there is a deep bond between them and they are enjoying their time together.

gratitude week

gratitude week: day seven

DSCN0247-007on this day of rest

i am grateful

for introspection

a time to look

within

and search

for what may be amiss

as i reflect on

experiences

in life

recent and past

thankful for all

even the hard lessons

not so easy

but have helped to form

who i am..

memories of a baby boy

born to me this day

thank you young man..

for the privilege

of being your mother

for family and friends

reminders of growth

for the sweet transparent

and grateful

hearts

that shared this week

thank you..

to all that read and follow

thank you!

for life that pleases

but always enough unease

to  keep me looking

up

lifting  praise

and thanksgiving

 from my quiet corner of the world..
