Happy birthday, dear friend

My dear friend is celebrating a birthday in just a few days.  Because we’ll both be away, we took the opportunity this morning to quietly celebrate together with a walk through our local show garden.

Standing in front of the ‘wall of water’ it was hard to believe that the highway was just feet away.


M is a truly delightful person, loving and giving of all of her resources including one of the biggest hearts in the world.  She gives of her time freely to her family, friends, neighbors and church family, and graciously and happily embraces everybody she knows into her fold.  I am more than blessed to have this lovely person in my life.

Midst walking and talking and enjoying the glorious pleasures of the lilies, roses, hydrangea, daisies, begonias, and countless other flowers in this little piece of heaven on earth, we took a close-up look at this ‘Harry Potter-ish’ corner of the garden:

88 Small animals and gnomes and little houses enhance the fairy-tale feeling of this pond and its surroundings.   It was fun to feel a little like a kid again for a few moments.

Happy birthday, M, wishing you all God’s blessings on your special day.  

And wishing each and everyone of you a friend, or dozens, who bless you just by being in your life.


Blessings, Peg
