Thought for Thursday

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
Anais Nin

I love the idea that we are always able to grow and change - it gives me great hope. I also love the idea that there are worlds in me which I am yet to discover and that, through the happy serendipity of friendship, these worlds will unfold. I have mentioned before that I have been blessed with beautiful friends. One of my dearest 'heart' friends and her darling husband came to our house today and sent Mr Button and I away to spend some grown up time together. We finished conversations, went to the movies, strolled through antique stores and looked at the things inside and finished by sitting down to lunch. It was a kind and thoughtful gift and we feel lucky to have had time together.

So, dear Lou-Lou, many, many thanks for today and for the world that was born when I met you! It is a great place to be.


  1. What ! You actually went inside the stores!How nice to have such a thoughtful friend , glad you enjoyed your day .

  2. It's so nice to have great friends! And fun to get together with hubby when there are no children fighting for attention.
    Glad you could have a day out!

  3. Oh - thanks for commenting on my blog. The strawberry jam recipe is one that is in the Certo Box. It's so easy, just mash strawberries, and some sugar mixed with the certo, let it sit for 1/2 hour, add more sugar, stir for 3 minutes and put in jars. There are a lot of recipe suggestions in the Certo box.
