Throughout my years, I have met many people. Maybe not as many, as others have. I tend to be on the quiet side, until a burst of inspiration comes my way, which seems to be far and few between. This morning, I have been thinking, about a few, that I have had the privilege of meeting. They blessed me with friendship. But what stands out, is that they were gentle messengers, extending kindness and love. Today, I ponder, and think about these people. Some were in my life for just a season, perhaps for the purpose of sharing their wisdom with me. The sweetness they exhibited, was like the fragrance of a flower, or the fresh smell of the earth, after a downpour of rain. With heartfelt gratitude, I am thankful for all.. I think most importantly, is the fact that we all need prayer and that there are always opportunities to extend kindness and encouragement.
The Weekly Photo Challenge, at the Daily Post is Bridge. As I observed my grandson climbing and watching the other young boy, I wondered if, he would extend a hand of help. I hope that we all recognize, that we can be bridge builders, encouragers and helpers on the sometimes unstable, rickety bridges of life.

This photo of the rocks piled on the log, is another one, that makes me wonder, who and when. The water looked pretty deep at this time and must have been cold.

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.. (:
It is not length of life, but depth of life..

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.
