There is an emanation from the heart

which cannot be described,

but is immediately felt and puts

the stranger at his ease.

~Washington Irving

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough...

.........and more.

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.

~Melody Beattie

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.

~John Henry Jowett

June Roses

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.

  1. I LOVE it. Although I am around the corner and can see many of the same sights, I like seeing the neighborhood through your eyes. And I will depend on you to keep me informed when I go back to the US in September.
