SEPTEMBER SUNDAYS


Oh, dear friends!!  I am so much enjoying this blog!! Your comments are priceless and I am so glad you are sharing my sense of humor!  Things just strike both Bill and I funny and sometimes not everyone can catch the humor!  So it is so much fun to hear from you all.  I have published all of your comments but they are not showing as yet and you know I am not a patient person!  If I could wish something for every one of you, it would be a good marriage and partner in life.  Even with Bill's cancer hovering over us 24/7, he has never lost his sense of humor and we laugh about something every day.  Bill was 6 foot tall before the cancer.  The bone collapse in his spine has him now measuring 5'7"--on a good day.  One morning he came out as I was making coffee, kissed me and noticed how I do not have to tip toe to return the kiss.  He said, "Someday, I will wake up and be this tall" and he raised his hand from the floor about 2 1/2 feet, "and I will be saying 'me-me--me,me,me!"  I marvel at his finding humor in all situations. 

                                           "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile
                                                but sometimes your Smile can be the source of your joy."

September Sundays....
                        
Among the fallen leaves
Summer's remnants succumb too soon.
as shortened days and Harvest Moon
Light the Autumn nights.

A crispness starts to fill the air
As summer's warmth gives way
To branches bare
And snow is waiting in the wings
To take the center stage.

Bill put a little pile of maple leaves
Into the outdoor chimanea pot
And lighted them so I could enjoy
The aroma on the spot.

Ah, sweet Autumn
Just when all seems serene
A restlessness is spilled......
In the color of your leaves.

Good Morning My Sweet Precious Friends,

Oh how you have made me smile. I cannot begin to tell you what a SURPRISE I received in my mailbox yesterday. OMG when I opened that box, Kerrie and Bill, I began to cry. Something I have not shared with you, Bruiser has cancer. You have so captured my beautiful "Handsome" boy. I will so treasure this piece forever and ever. You had no way of knowing, and that you would do this for me is the most precious gift I have ever received. I thank you both from the very bottom of my heart. Thank you, thank you. I am working on a beautiful post for you at this time. It should be posted in the next hour or so. Please keep checking my blog. This is a tribute to you both. I love you so much, so, so, much. Thank you my precious friends. Country hugs and love, Sherry
