Word for the Week


 Are you getting tired of travel photos yet?

Just a few more to share. I think one more post of a couple gardens to go. Thanks for hanging in there with me. I am grateful for you. I am grateful that I got to travel recently. It restored my soul to wander and explore. 

When I realized I was close to the Atlantic Ocean I knew I had to walk on the shore. I loved walking past sea grass and flowers to get to the sea.

There was even a light house nearby. I love lighthouses in all shapes and forms; so I was grateful to find this one standing tall.

 For some reason this just spoke to me of the south. It wasn't open, but I could imagine a few gents sitting there passing the day with a good chat, watching the day slide by.

Moss draping over the road as we drove, just so iconic!

I just can't help but share these little glimpses of the south. They were all so beautiful!

 And then there was just strolling the streets in Charleston, S.C.

And having tea with a dear friend.

More exploring!

How I love to explore and discover new sights! It just sings to my soul and I am grateful to still be able to do it.

There was even a ride in a carriage pulled by Clyde, the horse.

 Have you focused on "grateful" this past week as we celebrated Thanksgiving? Sometimes, for me at least, it is hard to focus on the things we are grateful for with so much sadness and anger in the world. Then Thanksgiving comes along and we have to take a moment to pause, sit with a friend, watch the day slide by, and notice what we are grateful for.

Let's keep it going!

What are you grateful for today?

GRATEFUL is one of the best words you have chosen, Marilyn. So many things to be grateful for. That little restaurant looks like a charming one - too bad it wasn't open when you passed through. I love those moss draping trees. Nel used to see them all the time when she lived in Georgia. What a dear picture of you and your friend having tea together. You look alike in this photo.

The Christmas season has begun! I'm so excited!

So many things to be grateful for....the list is long! And I guess this would be a good time to tell you that I am grateful for you and the joy you share with others! Keep bringing the photo journeys! I love them!! Susan

So glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving. It's a day and sentiment we could emulate. I give thanks for your friendship. Although we are far apart we can be together in heart and mind. Today we received your Christmas card and family news. It's the first card of the season and very special to hear all your family news. May December and your seasonal preparations be special. Love from us here in the UK.

Your adventure south certainly looks like it was a grand experience! I'm grateful that you have shared your journey, and shared the grandeur of the south. What an experience!
