Thank you for your help last night, it was so sweet and it helped. School went fine. Back home now and going to bed very very early. It was nice to be back with people again.

This is your daughter and son? They are so lovely, the garden is lovely. Let's all count our blessings.

Hi Ruth,

In Dutch they say:
'The right of a woman is the kitchen-right'

In dutch it sounds better but you know what I mean?

Who are you, the left or the right woman on the photo? Or none of them.. Just wondering....

Bye :) JoAnn

Nice family Ruth. My Patty and I are in the same boat. Our oldest is 51 and the youngest is 34. So I smiled when I read your reply to the lady who wondered who the three people were.

I knew I was getting old when people started holding the door open for me.

Nice shot. And thanks for visiting, Ruth.

Good words.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
