Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

I'm in love

with the potential

of miracles.

For me

the safest place

is

out

on

a

limb

~Shirley MacLaine~

I use to walk by these trees every day, a few times a day, with Ben & Ernie.

It was our "special spot" and some days I wondered who looked more forward to our walks.

When Ernie passed in May, I changed my walking route, and stopped going to our usual spots.

The woods had lost their appeal and felt cold and lifeless to me.

Wanting to try out Kim's fabulous "friday" texture (on a Thursday), I went through some old photos and as soon as I saw these trees, the memories came back. Lots and lots of great memories.

Once the texture was added, I noticed right away, the form of a heart next to the word love.

The text really sums it up for me ...

WHERE THERE IS GREAT LOVE

THERE ARE ALWAYS MIRACLES

It's snowing. Has been since I woke this morning.

I think I'll go walking through the woods today.

Thank you Kim Klassen for your wonderful 12 days of Textures.

I love snow too. It in itself seems like a miracle. I am sure Ben and Ernie would like to see you retracing the steps that you all have shared together. Just feel the love. It is there no doubt.
