Glasgow Helen's garden

Helen in Glasgow has been my friend for 62 years ! Her daughter died six years ago leaving a one year old golden child. He is the sun in Helens life.
I don't see my garden as you see it Helen said.
The rain stops for a few hours.
You usually do that sometimes, don´t you ! A line from Scottish folk song. Helen is a musician.
Joy is what happens when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. By Marianne Williamson
sadness changes its face in a garden...
Thomas honoring his mothers wedding anniversary, and then...
a game of football for the wee fella.

Rezando por 19 jóvenes. Thinking of Bolivia.

Creo que aquí es donde ocurrió el accidente en Bolivia. Rezando por la comodidad para las familias de los 19 jóvenes atletas que perdieron la vida en un accidente de autobús hace unos días. Los jóvenes viajaban a La Paz desde el pueblo de Chulumani y sus alrededores, a 180 kilómetros al noroeste de la capital. This beautiful scene -not my photo- is where 19 young Bolivian athletes ( aged between 14- 19)lost their lives a few days ago. I invite you to join me in sending the families your most loving thoughts and prayers, that they may in time be able to come to terms with and overcome their losses. The children were on their way from the country - the beautiful village of Chulumani in The Yungas area - to La Paz for a sports event. "When we leave this world, how much we have loved will be our true legacy. It is the only thing we will leave behind and carry with us." By Anne Siloy "Cuando dejamos este mundo, cuánto hemos amado será nuestro verdadero legado. Es lo único que dejará atrás y llevar con nosotros." Por Anne Siloy Когда мы покинем этот мир, как сильно мы любили будет наше истинное наследие. Это единственное, что мы оставим позади и провести с нами.
