the Sweetness of Friendship


In the sweetness of friendship
let there be laughter,
and sharing of pleasures
For in the dew of little things
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed
Kahlil Gibran

Let me share some pleasures ..

Meet my cozy slippers
my last Parisian macaroons
the last wildflowers of 2010

xx

I am more than happy to have met you, my sweet friends
happy to share in the little things in our daily lives
that make our lives great !

  78. HALLO SASKIA! As you can see, my font is large for this salutation because my voice is actually getting better! And I went to school today! I don't know, but my students give me energy. At times, yes, they do SAP my energy, but they are so kind to me. We went on a field trip today and did some French grammar and then some English grammar. Two little darling girls said, "Madame, we like your teaching style. You teach us good things to learn to be better writers." Well, I just about fell over in shock. You never know what they are thinking! I want to thank you for your WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP mijn lieve vriendin for all your sweet support. I so appreciate these virtual hugs and well wishes; oh how I wish I could meet you all!
