Battered and Beaten

And in the end,
it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years.
~Abraham Lincoln


My favorite mums have been blooming out in the garden for a few weeks...
Sadly~
I never got out to enjoy them.
Luckily~
My daughter picked one for me that hasn't been battered by the weather.

She is my light on a dreary day.

Chas, this is so lovely. It has such a painterly quality. Great job!

I was thinking of your sweet girls the other day when I was looking at Flit. He sends his love to you...

I had to come back to look at all your recent posts, or at least the ones I've missed. Your photos are beautiful as always Chas, as are the effects you work on them.

I hope there's some sunshine coming your way - seems like the burdens of life are weighing you down.

May the Lord bless you and keep you and all those you hold dear.
