February's Reflective Moment

I turned the page in my Reflective Moments book on the first of this month.  During February, I have and will continue to look and think upon these words of Francis Thompson.

It's startling to be reminded that we and all things are so linked to each other that every single thing we do or don't do has an influence on a great number of other persons or things.

That inspires me once again to be conscious of what I say and do.  Being human, I'll often fail to say or do "the right thing" but I'll continue to strive to do the best I can.    



Besides my book of Reflective Moments, I'm enjoying this set of three lavender-filled, heart-shaped pillows.  They're in my reading/writing room where I spend my most precious hours.

Both the book and the homemade pillows came to me from my dear friend, Sarie.  I love being reminded of her and our friendship whenever I'm enjoying these treasures.

Do you have a special friend who's always there for you?

Yes, you!
You wonderful girl. Thanks for mentioning me dear. I've turned my matching book to the same page. I love what you've written here about that page-I'm with you on this one 100%.

We match in book and pillows! :) We are awesome :)

Hope you're having a fabulous Friday dear. Me, I'm just trying to get to Saturday, haha!

Love,
Sarie

SARIE: We're two lucky girls aren't we!!

Do you and Russ have anything fun planned for the weekend? Lon and Jared have to work Sat. and Sun. at Fagan Ford. I'll be on my own and that's okay once in a while.

Have a great weekend!!

Enjoy your weekend, Linda.

I have special friends all over that I have never met, but they still comfort me, inspire me, and make me laugh. Even though I couldn't make them out in a crowd, I feel as close to them as those I come face to face with daily.

So thanks my friend, for sharing your life a piece at a time with me.

WALK: Aw, you're sweet. I agree 100% with you. The friendships we've developed online are invaluable.

Thanks for stopping by, Walk.
