~ Dear ....

In my long absence I have still been following your blogs.
I really missed joining in.
I wanted to jump in on "Friday's Letters" .... but .... I can't seem to find that blog now.
So, I will just present you with my letters .....
Dear Bloggers .....
Thank you for re-visiting my blog and welcoming me back.
And thank you for letting me unlock my feelings and expressing your support.
I've missed the camaraderie.
Letting my thoughts flow once again felt good.
I appreciated some new faces visiting.
And I really appreciated some familiar faces coming back.
Thank you!
Dear Hummingbirds ....
  Why don't you visit?
What am I doing wrong?
I clean the feeder every few days and add new nectar.
I have the feeder in a partly sunny/shady area.
There are plenty of branches around for you to rest on.
Please come around.
Dear Sunflowers ....
It was tough going for awhile.
I put you out in the sunshine as seeds.
To my horror the squirrels were digging you up.
But you persisted.
And you are starting to grow.
I can't wait for you to bud and bloom.
Dear Life ....
Please present us with a bowl of cherries.
We need the break.
Life is so short as it is.  
Learning to accept what can't be changed is the first step.
My husband's health issues cannot be changed.
So I need to accept that and just deal with it.
It will help coming back into the blog world.
So, I am back.
I will no longer sit back and watch life go by.
I'm jumping in.
For my own sanity.
For my husband's sanity and peace of mind.
The last thing I need or want is for him to be worrying about me.
Yours truly,

    Carmen and Alexandra

  3. And I am a new follower because of your words~and photos:)

  4. Welcome back! You've been missed :)

  5. What pretty pictures and words to go with them:-)

  6. Sweet letters and pictures. The hummingbirds will show up - I decided to just go with sugar water this year and they are pretty regular here. Glad you are back gal and may you get some good servings of cherries, life is too short and flies by much too quickly.

  7. Yes, cherries are sweet, but sometimes those dang pits show up. Blogging saved my sanity, hope it helps yours. Sometimes those little hummers are pretty picky...have only seen one so far this summer. I usually do a Friday Letter too, but this week I didn't.

  8. You are so talented -- s glad to see you back my friend. Please stay...

  9. I found you through my friend La Table de Nana...sending you a hug. A new follower her as well...

  10. What a beautiful post! my sunflowers are like yours, survivors (but with mine it was slugs that ate half of the seedlings). The ones that struggle through are even more special through their striving. Kind of like us & the trials in life that way... Thanks for the lovely inspiration & welcome back to blogging. P.S. Thank You for your comment on my bloglovin post. If you have any trouble with google reader transfer, I'd be delighted to help. Happy weekend! :)

  11. What a nice post my hummingbirds just started coming around. Hang in there Hugs


  12. What a lovely post! Yes, jump in, enjoy life and face each new day with a smile! xo (Diane, in response to your question, no I don't sell any patterns, but I'm very flattered that you asked! Have a fun weekend, my friend! :)
