    Thanks for these reminders, Gina. Part of the fabric of our lives is the contrast! And gratitude abounds from that place.

      Hello Cathy! That is wonderfully put, that part of the fabric of our lives is the contrast. Like a beautiful tapestry that holds dark blues and blacks balanced with the highlighted brighter colors of pinks yellows oranges and reds. Thank you, as always, for your comments.
      Hugs,
      Gina

    It’s not often that an Anne Bradstreet quotation is seen! One of her poems, Upon my Son Samuel his goeing for England, Novem. 6, 1657, was once on the GCSE set list and I loved it. Thank you for this – and thank you for choosing to follow. 🙂
