It does a HEART good...........


...to dream. To ponder the place of your hearts' desire and think on lovely things~ noble and pure, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy and so on and so on!
To think on this always, and especially n a week of a dear friends heartbreaking loss, and a little outpatient procedure that only gals of "my age" would have! Pooey, life gets messy sometimes!
But today we drove to the lake, we pondered lovely things and dreams~ just me and hubby. Took childhood beds out to our oldest girl. Married and a new house within the lakes view. It was just so good. We pulled up and there they were in the yard with their doggie Jake....stacking wood. And we went indoors to the smell of banana bread baking, warmed by the woodstove. Drinking iced tea out of mason jars and it was just so cozy. She wants a garden. He wants a boat dock. They have dreams. I loved it, and pondering that goodness all the way home. Their dreams and mine...ours. It's valuable. I really hope you give your mind some time for that this week. Desires of your heart! XOXOX

My heart is *yearning* for some time to dream. I hope, hope, hope I can carve out some time this weekend. Amidst all of the crises--big and little--I need to re-kindle my vision so I can keep on keepin' on! Thanks for posting this!
