Farmgirls, Sisters, Kindred Spirits, Friends...


With this picture of my farming maternal great grandfather's sisters, I opened my blog.


Two hundred post ago, I had no idea what a lovely world would soon unfold before me.

What  beautiful new friends I would make.

Kindred Spirits

Sisters

Like-minded souls who long for more peaceful, contented, orderly and creative lives.


I found them here and throughout my fair state and for that...

I thank you!


I'm truly looking forward to 2011. 

 I haven't been the most prolific of blog-posters, but not for lack of ideas.  


Life happened.  


A long tall Texan once said...

"When my actions meet my intentions, I make a really good friend."



I hope to be a better friend this year.



Yes, I am truly looking forward to 2011!!!

I hope you are too!


Have a beautiful week!

What a neat picture, and how wonderful to know so much about your family. You could be Mabel's twin!
Ha! I hadn't thought of that, linda. It's really easy to identify Mabel in photos. I came across an old picture of a group of school children sitting under a tree and recognized her...then to my astonishment, I saw a girl in a matching dress to Mabel's...who looks EXACTLY like me! Mabel had a sister who passed away when she was around 10 years old. : ( I'll have to do a post about it! Oh, and my oldest brother looks exactly like Aunt Mabel's brother...our great grandpa!

I love all your family photos and so enjoy seeing the projects you so creatively complete. I too have enjoyed meeting so many new friends here in bloggy land and am glad to count you among them.

May blessings abound for you in 2011.
