Friends are Special (And a Giveaway)

I was asked to blog about Friendship and host a giveaway - and of course I couldn't refuse!
(The frame above is part of the giveaway)

Why are Friends Special?  This is why:
 A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails. 
 ~Donna Roberts

There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.
 ― Linda Grayson

And what better way to say "Thank you for being my friend" than with a box of Chocolates
ESPECIALLY THESE  Merci Chocolates!
As you can see the box is open ..... I couldn't exactly tell you how if I liked them if I didn't try them now could I?  and like them I did .... well actually I LOVED them. Every single one was delicious. 
(I did share with hubby and so I did not eat them all) 
They were a perfect after dinner delight!  
(a before dinner delight too)

Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer. 
 ~Author Unknown
This Candle (Dark Chocolate Scent Of Course) is also part of the Giveaway

Red-bellied Woodpecker - Female

Build a House for men and birds. 
Sit with them and play music. 
For a day, for just one day, 
talk about that which disturbs no one 
and bring some peace, my friend, 
into your beautiful eyes.
 ~ Hafiz

Female Red-Bellied Woodpecker



Every day I see or hear something that more or less kills me with delight, that leaves me like a needle in the haystack of light.
~ Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver is an amazing Poet!  Her words seem to reflect exactly how I feel!


The Beauty of Rain

But the true lover of rain.... has a deep inner enjoyment of the rain, as rain, and his sense of its beauty drinks it in as thirstily as does the drinking earth. It refreshes and cools his heart and brain; he longs to go forth into the fields, to feel its steady stream, to scent its fragrance; to stand under some heavy-foilaged chestnut-tree, and hear the rushing music on the crowded leaves. 
~ John Richard Vernon, "The Beauty of Rain," 1863

Bluebird Curiosity

It's daring to be curious about the unknown, to dream big dreams, to live outside prescribed boxes, to take risks, and above all, daring to investigate the way we live until we discover the deepest treasured purpose of why we are here. 
 ― Luci Swindoll

Male Bluebird - Heritage Park - Blackburg, Virginia



The You Within

And like flowers in the fields, that make wonderful views, when we stand side-by-side in our wonderful hues...

 We all make a beauty so wonderfully true. We are special and different, and just the same, too! 

 So whenever you look at your beautiful skin, from your wiggling toes to your giggling grin... 

 Think how lucky you are that the skin you live in, so beautifully holds the "You" who's within.
~ Michael Tyler, The Skin You Live In


Fun in the Wet Grass

I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.
 ~ Dr. Seuss

Doesn't it look like this squirrel is looking at me and saying that exact same thing?




Listen to the Flutter

But this time I chose to silence both my head and my heart so that I could listen carefully to the silent flutter of wings. 
~ Lacey Ellmoore


A Time Of Quiet Joy

It is a time of quiet joy, the sunny morning. When the glittery dew is on the mallow weeds, each leaf holds a jewel which is beautiful if not valuable. This is no time for hurry or for bustle. Thoughts are slow and deep and golden in the morning.
~ John Steinbeck  


Always Dancing

There was something in her movements that made you think she never walked but always danced.
 ― L.M. Montgomery

Common Buckeye Butterfly leaves the wildflower .... on to the next.



Give It Away

One of the most difficult things to give away is kindness; it usually comes back to you. 
~ Anonymous

Snapping Turtle

Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. 
Love everything, you will be happiest.
 ~ Sri Chinmoy

House Wren Display

“ don't need a calling to minister love...” 
~ John Geddes

These little House Wrens can be very vocal.  I believe this one was displaying and calling for his mate.  Soon she arrived and I believe he took her "house hunting"  I've read that he builds up to 12 nests and lets her choose which one she wants.
What a Guy!!



If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.
 ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh


Make Your Dreams Come True

Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A good mother loves fiercely but ultimately brings up her children to thrive without her.

Keep On Flying

Life is hard
but we must
keep on flying.

Nature has a LOT to teach us about not giving up,
about being tough when things are rough
Continuing to Fly


Be Gentle

Be gentle first with yourself if you wish to be gentle with others. 
~ Lama Yeshe

Chase A Butterfly

Be a child again. Flirt. Giggle. Dip your cookies in your milk. Take a nap. Say you're sorry if you hurt someone. Chase a butterfly. Be a child again.
― Max Lucado
