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.

The Candle Wreath
I love wreaths. There is something about the shape of a wreath...the circle.....it means infinity, and eternity...the circle means love like the wedding ring. When painting a wedding plaque...I would paint a circle of flowers around the edge...a wreath sort of shape.When my son married Karen, she had two little girls. I made floral wreaths for head pieces for them. I would put little wreaths on the doors of all the little houses I painted. Wreaths would show up on fence posts in paintings. I've made pine cone wreaths and while working in a gift shop....I made so many floral wreaths. My job at Church includes decorating the doors with wreaths.I found barbed wire fencing in my woods...and I fashioned wreaths out of this...to hang on a couple of trees. One of my favorite scarves is my infinity scarf.
Today is overcast and the weather doesn't sound good for the next few days. I'm glad that I don't have Christmas things to do now. Yesterday, after lunch at Olive Garden, I went to Michael's and Kohl's. The parking was difficult and the shopping was a test of patience. Everyone had heard about the weather...and I think that this makes people crazy...especially if they have Christmas shopping yet to do. Sales, clerks forever straightening displays... messed up by customers..... all led to a shopping trip that I hoped would soon be over. I got back in my car and bid the stores goodbye for 2013.Do you know....I just realized that I never saw any Christmas decorations...there must have been some, but I didn't notice.
