  6. As someone who lives near Boston and knows several people who were actually there and witnessed the explosion (not hurt, thankfully), I am at a loss for words. There is an emptiness, a hole inside. While I realize Evil exists in the world, I dislike being reminded and staring into it's face. I am going to take your advice; write a long over due letter to a dear friend, keep my loved ones close, and spend the weekend in my garden. Hopefully, it will help me see the face of Good again.

  18. I agree, I often say the world has gone mad. I sometimes think the world is full of cruelty but then I remember the kindness and humanity that exceeds that thought.

  21. that is how I remember your rose garden looking, how lovely.

    I have felt v. emotional about all he sad things happening in the world too.

    This is why small things like tending a garden, and cooking for family and seeing friends is so important. x

  25. Hi Janet. So glad I ran into you at Trader Joe's the other day. Was having a rough day and you were very encouraging. Thank you for taking the time to stop and talk to me. I have started adding foods that heal to my diet and leaving out the many foods that are not healthy.

    Hope you are having a beautiful weekend!

  27. Janet,

    Your blog is a bright spot amidst the hatred and craziness in this world. I have to remind myself that there are way more good people out there than bad.

    Looks like your rose garden is back to it's full glory!

  31. Your roses are so pretty. I'm checking every day to see how much my new tulips have grown. I just planted them last fall, so I'm excited to see what comes up. Things are crazy and it's so hard to take in. We so need to see beauty, do nice things for each other, and just be nice. We just have to be better, do better.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
