thank you

Christmas lights

Some days I am just amazed at the way we are all connected.
There I sat; feeling sad.
I visited a friend who wrote about being honest and real and acknowledging sadness.

A few days go by and your loving support pours healing onto my bruised heart.
There I sat; feeling happier.
I visited a friend who knows that small wishes are the best kind.

And I know it again.
I know that love is what makes the world go round. Yes.
But. Compassion, connection, and friendships are what heals a broken heart.

May your hurts be healed, too, my friends.
Thank you for your love.

Merry Christmas, Relyn! I love that photo. You surely used a tripod, right? Hope you are feeling better.

No tripod. I will this year, though.

First, your photo is fantastic. There must be a million lights on that tree-- I can almost count them!

I caught up on your posts and understand why you were sad. The school closing is tough. I wish it didn't have to happen. But what a nice reminder of the connections and thoughtfulness of fellow bloggers.

Merry Christmas, jj

Glowing blue lights. And lamplight, and beads of light in the background. I love the colors.

I'm glad you're feeling better. Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous Christmas lights. I hope to have time this weekend to see the lights. Friendships surely do help us heal. I am so thankful for the friends I have made here.

Love the photograph. Hope you are working on Sloane's Alaska albumn and enjoying it.
I now believe in destiny and the fact that sometimes things do happen for a reason. Glad you are feeling better now.
I plan to buy a new camera in the new year, will touch base with you for tips -- but I know that I will lack your artistic touch.
