Back and Posting!

It has been way too long since I have been here!
It has been a busy past couple of months as preparations continued for my daughter Natalie's wedding to James. They were married on April 10th and it was a wonderful wedding and a beautiful sunny day! So blessed as April here in England can be a showery wet month! I will be posting photos of the wedding day real soon!
I am recovering from a viral illnes stemming from my asthma and allergies. Yes, with that beautiful weather comes the downside for me-pollen!! I actually lost my voice for a few days and felt unwell. My voice now coming back,well somewhat and I am feeling a little better!
I thought that I would share a few quotes and photos today and get back slowly into blogging again.
Here are two photos: One of Woodstock, a picturesque village where Winston Churchill is buried. I love going for a cream tea here and I am posting a photo of me having a cream tea! Yummy!! All photos taken this month.

Try being a guardian angel to someone else today. You may find the blessings you receive are as great as the ones you give.
True friendship is a knot that angel hands have tied.

How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to Him because we have nowhere else to go and then we learn that the storms of life have driven us,not upon the rocks but into the desired haven. George MacDonald

  4. Good to have you back! I love to have cream tea at a tea room! You look very lovely sitting having your tea! Hope you are feeling better. Those allergies can be rough. I have them also, and it has already started even though it is still cold here. I am getting anxious for the warm weather to get here and STAY this time!
