Good morning, good afternoon, good evening folks - there, I think I've covered all the greetings for wherever you might be in the world as you read this little Post.
I simply can't believe that it's Friday again already - my life is simply disappearing before my very eyes, and at my age, that's not such a good thing ! I suppose I'm in the Autumn of my life. Well, Autumn can be quite delightful, so I intend to sit back and enjoy the ride.
To be honest, I am very grateful to still be around. I have lost several friends over the years that have died far too young. A couple very suddenly, and a couple after suffering illness, but I'm grateful that they were in my life, and for the happy memories that they left behind.
In this country, we talk about the weather quite a lot, but, my goodness, I'm thankful that our weather is fairly steady, when I look at what is going on in America at the moment.
Raging fires in some States, the devastation in Texas, which I touched on in a previous Post, and now they have Hurricane Irma threatening to hit Florida quite soon. I pray for all those involved and that all my bloggy friends down that way will keep safe. What a worry that must be!
My last Post involved the word Kindness. It's really spooky, but I have seen that word mentioned on Facebook quite a lot since I wrote it. I really like this picture ....
There is a little story behind the photo. Harper Collins UK made this postbox so that all those working in the building could post kind notes to each other, to coincide with publication of that little book on kindness.
Well, my youngest grandchildren went back to school this week, so I won't be seeing them quite so much again now, but I'm grateful for all the fun and happy times that I spent with them during the Summer holidays. Memories made and precious times to be treasured.
My eldest granddaughter returned to University this week, and I am so proud of her, as she starts her third year at Madrid University.
So looking back, yes, it's been a good Summer and once again, I feel thankful.
So little peeps, I wish you a happy weekend ahead, and for those in America affected by the weather, I hope you all stay safe.
This one made me smile ....
