"This is my wish for you; Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life." ~Lynnie Buttercup~
I do not know if these four leaf clovers are going to bring me luck, but I was walking out in the yard this afternoon and was lucky enough to find these four all in the same clump of clover. Thought I'd share them with all my friends.
On this Tea and Friendship Tuesday I would like to share a poem I found in the magazine Reminisce. I hope you enjoy it.
Drinking From My Saucer
I've never made a fortune and it's probably too late now. But I don't worry about that much. I'm happy anyhow. And as I go along life's way, I'm reaping better than I sowed. I'm drinking from my saucer, 'Cause my cup has overflowed.
I don't have a lot of riches, and sometimes the going's rough. But I've got loved ones around me, And that makes me rich enough. I thank God for his blessings, And the mercies he's bestowed. I'm drinking from my saucer, 'cause my cup has overflowed.
I remember times when things went wrong, My faith wore somewhat thin. But all at once the dark clouds broke, And the sun peeped through again. So God, help me not gripe About the tough rows that I've hoed. I'm drinking from my saucer, 'Cause my cup has overflowed.
If God gives me strength and courage When the way grows steep and rough, I'll not ask for other blessings, I'm already blessed enough. And may I never be too busy To help others bear their loads. Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer, 'Cause my cup has overflowed. ~John Paul Moore~
Wishing you all a blessed Tea and Friendship Tuesday.

An Autumn Day
Pumpkins in the cornfields, gold among the brown, leaves of rust and scarlet trembling slowly down; birds that travel southward, lovely time to play; nothing is as pleasant as an autumn day! ~Carmen Lagos Signes~
October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came. The chestnuts, oaks, and maples, and leaves of every name. The sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band ~George Cooper~
