This Says It All

'Salon de Paris' Itzchak Tarkay

Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.

Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.

Sisters are there,
no matter how much time and how
many miles are between you.
A girl friend is never farther away
than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you
have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life
will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on,
praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on
your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the
valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk
beside you...Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters,
daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers,
Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended
family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and
neither would I. When we began this adventure called
womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or
sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we
would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.

Pass this on (thank you Juls)
to all the women who help make your life meaningful.
I just did.

Short and very sweet:
There are more than twenty angels in this world.
Ten are peacefully sleeping on clouds.
Nine are playing.
And one is reading my blog at this moment.

Send this message to your friends
someone you love will surprise you.

Hi Margaret! I was waiting to see a new entry to stop in and say hello. I really enjoyed meeting you and hope we will be able to get together again. Thanks for the email address. I have been having monitor problems (which Jos has now fixed) and still have to email her. Hope all is well and you have heard something about your car? I am busy remodeling things in our house and have not been stitching as much as I would like.

Hugs en groetjes ~
