Taking a Break

Hello everyone.   There are no words sufficient to express my appreciation for followers, old and new.   Will you accept flowers instead?

This Sunday – Potpourri

Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, and all creatures great and small,

Those of you familiar with our writers and comment participants may have noticed that Towerflower has been absent.  She gave me her approval to share this.  Whatever your path, whether prayers, positive thoughts or good wishes, she needs them.  Her sister and her mom both had strokes on the same day.  Her sister is now out of the hospital, but her 89 year-old mother is having problems.  Her mom had been taken off blood-thinners in preparation for a surgery, and that is when she had the stroke.  She has days of speaking clearly, and days of slurring her speech.  There are days when she just sleeps.   Please keep towerflower in your thoughts.

Well, why should I worry?  I’m in Illinois and Illinois always carries the Democratic candidate for president. Read the rest of this entry
