"If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire.
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in! Come in!"


Hello Relyn. I'm most of those things. Thanks for the invitation.

love this photo and the words, do you really cry at fireworks? I think that is so wonderful :)

Tracy said...

Wishing you safe and very happy travels, Relyn! :o) ((HUGS))

Tracy said...

Oh, me again... haha... You were asking about the 4th here. Well, no July 4th is no holiday here in Norway, and neither is Thanksgiving. Living abroad, those are the two holidays I miss. But we Americans abroad take our customs with us. ;o) However, I have a cold just now--not much fun in summer--so no grand 4th celebrating this past weekend here... *sniffles*... ((HUGS))

This would make a perfect card, you know. I can see it in a row of cards - and it would make me smile. You could do an entire series of them. Just something to think about. :)

Relyn said...

Krissi,

I do cry at fireworks. Every time, since I was a very young woman. They are just so beautiful and we have so very much to be thankful for.

ELK said...

have a wonderful week in a very special place ...the fireworks are amazing

Hindsfeet said...

Thanks for your sweet wishes on my site, Relyn...

I'm with ya...I always tear up at the National Anthem, at ball games, at races, whenever, wherever......

Some things are worth tear-ing up over, yeah?

(Hey, I've got a new read goin'...well, actually, not quite out o the gates yet, but it came *highly* recommended from a friend, so can't wait to dig in..."The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder" by Rebecca Wells....)

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

what a soothing place your blog is. i pray that y'all have a wonderful time!

Roban said...

I love your fireworks picture and your words.... I totally understand the tears.

Thanks for the holiday wishes.... We've been away as well, but are now home, finally, for a couple of weeks.

Enjoy your trip!

And she makes beautiful photographs of them. He must love that too.

Pearl Maple said...

Great photo, hope you are having a fun weekend and trip to the museum. Might be a million miles away but we still managed to organise a cookout with hotdogs and s'mores to celebrate.
