Friday's FAVE Five ~ LIFE

Thank you Susanne for allowing me to share my highlights.
This was a memorable week.
MGCC Girls made a road trip.
The MGCC girls edged cautiously across the border,
with passports filed orderly...

A Day Trip!
  • Who taking the pictures?
  • Who's in charge?
  • Follow the directions on the map!
  • (Why didn't she use the GPS?)
  • Carry your booties in a bag.
  • If one bends, we all bend.
  • Can you imagine 5 "take charge women" in one SUV?
Meeting a new Blogger Friend

We were all anticipating this day for awhile.
What does she look like?
Will she fit in?
Here she is:
Ellen B.
We were like a melting pot.
Sharing our stories of history and life.

A Field Trip through the Tulips!
La Conners

Then we all sploshed and splashed through the tulips,
some might of tip-toed..but we were wearing booties.


We found an antique shop that dated magazines
to the year, that our mother's gave us LIFE!
So we grabbed LIFE!
We paid for it.
Sometimes LIFE can be blurry.
Sometimes LIFE can be lost.
Both of us have not been able to locate our magazines!
I guess that's LIFE!!!!
I wonder who left them behind?

Sharing Friends, Old and New

"Take a million raindrops, break clouds apart;
Streams of golden sunlight create a magic art.
Blue sky is the canvas, look above and see____
God's covenant of love in heavens gallery!"
Ollie Robertson.

We Shared LIFE!

Have a wonderful week my friends.
