I took it from the back wall when they started painting and have had it sitting on my kitchen window for awhile and when I was day dreaming about family and friends I looked up to see this lovely piece that was painted by my mum for me!
Each brush stroke is done with such a lot of love and the laughter comes from her joy of life mum has had many low points of her life but let me tell you she never gave away her smile or her laughter.
Friends well without friends who would we share a grandchild's first words or a story or two, Mum's life has been filled with many friends and while some went far too early in life and others she has known most of her life she has always had time for new friends and that makes her such a gem to know should you see her smiling face in the street for a chat and a "hello" you are truly the lucky one.
Mum this little plaque holds for me every moment and every special event that ever was part of your life because I know you would have day dreamed like me while you put the paint in just the right spot with a smile on your passionate caring face.
Summer is coming for friends around the world and I have been thinking about a particular spot and two particular friends who will enjoy their summer.
When I day dream I always think back to a moment when two friends sat and kept watch over a beautiful beach and chatted and enjoyed each others company and friendship and I miss that right now but know we will sit again one day in that very spot and chat as if it was yesterday again.
This tiny picture was taken at Kennebunkport beach and my day dreams always end right there as I never can get beyond the beauty of such a special place.
Anyway my lovely cup of tea is now finished and my day dreams have been tucked away for another day.
This is my Thursday.............I am so blessed to know you all!
