Quite The Pair

I wish I could take credit for this fabulous painting, but I can't. I was given it as a gift from one of my dearest and closest friend that I know. I love the colors she painted the pear. The way she looks at life is very unique. Their is nothing plain about this woman, her world is colorful and so is her heart. I talked to her yesterday on the phone for about 2 hours and we just talk like she is right there. She used to live in the city but has moved up North now to be closer to family. Anyway my husband and I are going up to see her the end of September or early October and I am so excited I could just burst! She even babysat me newyears eve when I had just turned 40.
I had been in the hospital with stroke like symptoms, luckily it just turned out to be a severe cataplecy spell...she came and sat with me, how many of you can say you had a sitter for yourself on New Years Eve, maybe after too much celebrating! There is not enough I can say about her, she keeps me on my toes, she keeps me real, she calls it as she sees it! I love her, plain and simple as that. She also can sing her heart out, she has one of the best voices I have ever heard, and I just love to listen to her sing. Anyway if she reads this today she will be walking around with a big head, the feeling is mutual, and that is why we are quite the pair of gals when we get together.

Things I am Thankful For Today ,
I am thankful I can sit here on my computer in silence while listening to the birds coming alive right outside my window.
I am thankful I have such a wonderful friend whom knows me inside and out and loves me unconditionally.
I am thankful if today I can just make one person smile.
I am thankful today that my back feels better than yesterday.
I am thankful that I continually count my blessings,
I am thankful for my life, and its many changes that has made me really open my heart to all the possibilities that are there, I am thankful that I am getting over whom I once was and that I am concentrating on whom I am now!
I am thankful that I consider everyday to be my best day!!


  1. Then today is a good day because you made me smile. Thankfully. I love coming here to be with you, Cinner. I honestly, honestly do.

  2. That is great Holly, I enjoy you coming by everyday...When you don't I miss you. Have a great day, its raining here, so it is an inside day. Big Hug!

  3. I smiled too as soon as I saw the BIRD in your banner. Now I'm smiling cuz my stoopid computer is letting me comment and TELL you I'm smiling. I feel about Veronica (& you, & Holly, & Sam, & Beth, and so on) the same way you write about your friend, and I have never met any of you ... I sure do want to.

    Bernie, I love you coming to visit,,,it is amazing how a whole morning can go by so quickly sometimes.

Just made me smile thinking about it again.Have a great day Bernie! Big Hug!

  8. Crista, I have learned the difference of having friends and acquaintances. Some of my friends have come and gone because of life circumstances or because I can't get together in the evening since my illness. But the ones I call true friends have been there through thick and thin. Those are whom I cherish. I am so excited to go and see her. we will sit in our pjs talking, my husband with think we have lost our minds and we will love knowing he knows how important we are to each other. Big hug for you today. Take care.

    Toni, it is wonderful when you feel that way , I have found that too with people I have never met, you, holly,beth,crista,char, just to name a few. It would be a dream come true if we could all meet some day, and why not! So to you, my beautiful friend, you have such a kind heart, you need to know how special I think you are...although you got me addicted to polyvore! Have a great day, Big Hug!
