The Windows Are Crying...........

Thank you so very kindly for your encouraging thoughts on Olivia's dress (previous post).......
You made both our days!

I wanted to show you these wonderful roses, I bought as a gift, as they are the most beautiful colour...

They are called the 'Chocolate Rose'.....
Brides are choosing them for their bouquets as they are soo special!

I don't think my photo's do them justice really.......
Whilst sheltering and waiting for a bus in the pouring rain, on what was our longest day yesterday,
an elderly lady joined me......
We chatted and she told me that her grand daughter used to say on days such as this, "Grandma, the windows are crying".......
It made me smile!

I am off work to day, so I am thinking I will possibly take a leaf out of my moggies book!

And just 'bee' rather than do.........
I will leave you with this little quote that I wrote on a plaque for a lady to give to her friend recently........
"Into every life, a little rain must fall,
call me any time you need an umbrella."..........
Thank you to my new followers also, I soo appreciate you popping in on me!
Have a weekend full of kindness.....
