Some days,

life is not at all what I thought it would be

Some days,

it is so very much more than I could ever have imagined

All my quiet heart can do

Is to take this one day

That lays sweetly before me

And gently cover it with love

Hoping…

That somehow

It will be a touch more beautiful

For someone

Somewhere…

    1. Good eye! It hasn’t worked in a long time but yes, there are catfish. I enjoy feeding them by hand some mornings. It is an awfully nice place. I’m afraid I over photograph it 🙃 but I do spend a fair amount of time here. Thanks for reading 😊

  1. You’re so right Suzanne. Sometimes life turns to one or another direction without giving the slightest notice. Embrace the day with love and gentleness. What a beautiful world, for all of us.

    I love your thought, and I share your words. 😊❤️

    1. Hi Isabelle, thank you for sharing with me your kind thoughts. Life changes rapidly doesn’t it? We never know what it will bring. I’m so grateful for the lovely bits that I never really asked for. But if you open your eyes, there they are. I hope all is well with you. May I dash you an email sometime, to say hello?

      Thanks again. Please take care, suzanne ❤️

      1. Life changes rapidly, it does Suzanne. I think there’re two kinds of changes, the first one we have no control of. Life is never predictable. Then comes the other type of changes, which are the ones that we’re a part of. We want to make the changes ourselves. When I read “the lovely bits that I never really asked for”, this thought crossed my mind. I think you might have given something to others without thinking of it yourself – love, compassion and kindness. All this came/comes back to you, in one or another way. Just some thoughts here Suzanne.
        I’d love to read your emails. I thought about it myself but I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to ask for your email address. I’d love to hear from you. This is my email address: isabellepan@hotmail.com
        It’s a long comment, you don’t need to reply. I’m well, thank you Suzanne. I hope all is fine with you too. Take care, Isabelle ❤️

      1. This is so beautiful to read…sometimes we think we are all alone in a moment where doubt exists and then we read that someone we have never met thought of us…this warms my heart, thank you so much, Ellie!

  2. My absolute pleasure Huguette (did I get that right)! 😊 I so understand those doubtful moments and the way a far away thought makes such a sweet difference. You have done the same for me this day. 🌷
