There is an emanation from the heart
which cannot be described,
but is immediately felt and puts
the stranger at his ease.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough...
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.
Don't be satisfied with stories,
how things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth.
May my life be like a great
hospitable tree, and may
weary wanderers find in
me a rest.

June is for strawberries and roses in England. We pass this house every day when we take Max for a walk after breakfast. Today the roses in front of the house were in their glory. The Oxford Blue of the front door looked so beautiful as a backdrop for the creamy roses.
If you take a walk to Holywell Cemetery, you'll pass this house on St. Cross Rd.
