Spread the Love...

Cynthia from Muse Swings has bestowed a wonderful award on many of her favorite blogs and mine was among the list, but you have simply got to check her out, especially if you need a good laugh for the day, she's a riot. It's just the simple things in life that so many of us can relate to, especially us in our 50-60's...you know, the ones with life experiences...the ones that survived the 50's and 60's and the clothes of the 70's...baby boomers, united we stand...plus she lives in my Florida...ask her about the palmetto bugs...


Then today while I was grunging my kitchen walls, Scratchy went ballistic...heaven forbid the mail carrier would have the nerve to pull into Scratchy's world...but she was delivering a package from a far off land...the beautiful, exotic land of Malaysia. Yes many of you already know Mary Kate of La Vie Est Belle. Many gifts from a land far away, with many meanings and wishes for a new year. Postcards of an exotic paradise and a people who inhabit this colorful world. Articles in red, a Chinese symbol for happiness and celebration. Symbols of another place and another time, a Chinese mystic knot, symbolizing never ending happiness, joy, wealth and good health always. A letter opener from Borneo sporting a colorful image of the largest flower in the world, the Rafflesia, found only in Borneo.

Gifts of love from a friend never met, but one who shares hope and love and friendship from afar. Wouldn't it be wonderful if our little blogs could spread PEACE, LOVE and HOPE all 'round the world with just one little note shared among friends...imagine...

Again, thank you so much M. Kate and Cynthia for gifts from the heart, as we spread the love this New Year.
Peace...can you imagine...

Love the new photo in your header! And a great and happy new year to you & Scratchy! This coming year will bring change - I am certain of it - we will all learn kindness, love and tolerance- I can "see" it coming! It will happen in our lifetime! Love to you and all the smiles you've given me -
Hugs,

I'm so amazed at the people we touch & are touched by with our blogs. That's what I love the most. People we would never know (like you) if we hadn't had the opportunity in our 50's & 60's to learn to use this contraption. I love the fact that I can say "peace" to people all over the world & hopefully, they know I mean it. May 2009 bring us all the opportunity to make this a more peaceful world. Happy New Year! Jan
