THE LASTING GIFT


God gave me the gift of memory. . .
that I might close my eyes and see
the ones I love, and who love me.

  4. Elegant simplicity, Margie. For some, I think, memory may be more of a curse than a gift though (e.g. memories of the horrors of war; memories of sexual abuse during childhood).

  6. So true Margie ... yet sweetly and sadly. Good one!
    We have some wierd and wonderful windy weather ... the spirit of the wind speaks loudly.
    Hectic ... trying to everything and actually doing nothing ... every had that.
    Hugs for you Margie xx

  10. How beautiful!! Both what you wrote and those girls :) Are they your daughters? So sweet!!

    Hi Margie, I wandered on to here (from a link on someone else's blog where you'd left a comment) and I thought I'd not be rude and just lurk but say hi before I leave...

  13. God gave me eyes
    God gave me a taste for beautiful women and poetry

    . . .
    that I might close my eyes and see
    the ones I love, and who love me.

  22. This has to be the sweetest, cutest image of children I have ever seen. It helps me to feel the joy that I imagine they are feeling. Imagination is also a wonderful gift from God :-)

  24. Beautiful! Memories are the most precious things we have! Creating memories is even better sometimes!

    Sorry I haven't been around much- feeling a bit under the weather. I wanted to come by and see what you were up to! Hope you're doing great!

  25. Close your eyes and get drifted to an entirely new world. A world without any boundaries, without any limits, a world full of dreams and ambitions. A little walk down the memory lane can do wonders :) Hope you are having a great day. Lovely picture by the way :)

  32. Hello SB
    Thanks so much!
    You are right about memory being a curse for some!
    Memories are not always beautiful!
    But the beautiful ones sure are beautiful to have!

  33. Hi Pat
    Actually the picture is one I got of the Net!
    The little girl on the right looks so very much like "my little girl"
    That is why I posted it!
    Brought back beautiful memories!
    "My little girl" is not that little now though!

  36. Hi Barbara
    They are beautiful little girls aren't they!
    I feel kind of funny about posting the picture..as they are not in my life!
    In a sense the little girl on the right is...as she looks so very much like my daughter!
    I see my daughter when I look at her!
    That is why I posted this picture!
    Brings back beautiful memories!
