    Default flowers

    "The saddest day hath gleams of light,
    The darkest wave hath bright foam beneath it,
    The twinkles o'er the cloudiest night,
    Some solitary star to cheer it."


    This quotation always brings me to tears.
    i had written it down somewhere
    But i gave it away as a gift
    Maybe someone else would like to share the author's name.





    Kindest wishes to all
    may you always feel sincerely Welcomed

    That's a nice encouragement, thanks!

    I did a Google search on "hath gleams of light", and found that it is from Sarah Winnemucca, Indian "scout, activist".

    That would make a nice cross-stitch message!

    That's nice. Did you find it in the Treasure's Trove book?

    Actually, A Treasure's Trove pointed it out to me.

    In fact, maybe it IS the actual treasure Seekers, like Travel'ngal, Cat957, and*myself* who ARE the Real Gems.


    but where do we all go to get "appraised"?

    wow, dreamstar... now I'm red

    It's enough if I'm a "treasure" to my hubby and my kids (which, with 2 of them teens, isn't often!). They are certainly mine.


    Thanks for the thought, though.


    And as far as getting "appraised", I'll get that in another Place...
