the Stairway of Life


Life is a series of steps
Things are done gradually
Once in a while there is a giant step
but most of the time
we are taking small,
seemingly insignificant steps
on the stairway of life

    Miss YOU!! One more lovely quote and wonderful pic! So professional you are with a camera, dear Friend!!!
    Steps and more steps. Sometimes they take us up and sometimes they take us down. The point is that we need to keep ahead.

    Preparing something for YOU, dear Friend! Just do not know if I will finish that in time...I hope!!!

  16. Hi Saskia!
    This is wonderful!
    I thought of the miners in Chile...taking one small step at a time to get back to their families...

    Our children entering life, one small step at a time... learning so much about love and life ♥
    We, their parents, making sure that they are always surrounded by the love of family as they venture off!

    I spoke of you today in school ... Talking about how close European countries are to each other... how if someone lived in the Netherlands, they could visit France, England, Belgium, Germany...

    Thinking of you dear ♥
    love,
    Maria

    Maar het is wel zo,voor de een is de trap erg hoog en de andere rent zonder moeite naar boven!

    Fijne dag, groetjes Thea

  32. YOU always make my day with your sweet words, dear Friend Saskia!!! Merci!!!

    In Brazil, Children's Day is celebrated on October 12, coinciding with Our Lady of Aparecida's day, the country's Patron Saint, which is a national holiday. So the city is all decorated and there are special activities for children. Aila got a book this year to celebrate the day. She LOVES books and then got really happy when she got the gift! Bia, my sister's daughter, that you saw in the pic got the gift I sewed for her and got happy too cause she loves bags and the like.

    I got soooo happy to know you are going to France, Saskia!!! I spent some beautiful time in France some years ago!!! I bought a music box there which plays La Vie en Rose. I play that melody every day and then I feel like walking through Paris' charming streets and parks...DO enJOY a lot, sweet Friend, a lot, every single moment with your pretty little ones! Dance with then, run, jump, have dinner at Quartier Latin, go up to the top of the famous tower, sail the beautiful river, eat crepe, cross the various charming bridges, visit Musee D'orsay. Celebrate the most important date of the year, sweet, YOUR date!!!!! Which is coming so fast:o)))

    Much Love from us!! Bela

  36. Hoi Saskia,
    Dat klopt hoor. Ik heb vandaag best weer een grote stap gezet. Ben n.l. niet zo'n held met autorijden, en ben toch zelf naar de Ahoy gereden....de rest van de week weer kleine pasjes...niet te hard van stapel lopen;-)
    Prachtige foto trouwens!
