God knew what He was doing
when He sent a gentle breeze
and brought a lovely butterfly
to set my heart at ease.
The happiness of your friendship
and the gentleness of your words
have touched my life in special ways
and now I feel assured.
Thank you for your loyalty
and for reading everyday.
I only hope you find things
to make a happy day.

Do You Ever Buy Yourself a Christmas Present?
I just received my first issue of Country Living...the UK edition. I hemmed and hawed over this purchase a month or so ago because of the cost, but I decided to give myself a Christmas present and ordered it. I had to wait several weeks to get it, but let me tell you...it was worth the wait. We have a Country Living magazine here in the states and I have been a subscriber for many, many years. I saved the first 10 yrs of magazines, but decided to give them up when I moved here. I stopped saving them after 10 yrs. because the magazine had changed so much. Instead of country...it was getting too modern for my tastes. Then a year ago, I heard about the English version of the magazine....and that led me to the decision to subscribe. This December issue is full of treats for the reader...best picks for presents, handmade paper crafts for Christmas, a story about a glass blower, the Warwickshire garden's magical effect, decorations from the hedgerow, Christmas in a cottage, countryside in winter, a story about an old Church, women and their sheds,Swan Lake, creations from the kitchen and on and on. So much wonderful holiday reading in this treasure of a magazine.I'm saving it for an afternoon...when the snow flies...hopefully before Christmas.Tell me do you ever buy yourself a present?
PS...I ordered a British garden magazine too. Another Christmas present for me.... tee hee
