A number of people have asked me over the years about my MOST favorite photo. As you can imagine, that's always difficult for me. I chose the photo above. Yesterday, it waved to me as I was scooping Jean-Pierre's birthday wishes. It reminded me of one of my own birthday wishes that was particularly special because this photo was a part of it.
Jane Jolly was one of many who'd asked the question during the summer of 2012. Little did I know, that it was to become my birthday gift below. Oh, I love the photo and the French stamps are perfect for a stamp collector girl like me...but it was Jane's verse that brought tears to my eyes:
"May Life Always be the Fairy Tale You Write..."
I'm missing Jane this morning. If I were in the Lot this summer, we'd be out on the back covered terrace. She'd be sitting on her favorite; the porch swing. I'd be sitting on the knee high stone border facing her (in my overalls of course). We'd be drinking coffee and doing our very best to find the fairy tales that were missing in our often difficult lives of recent times. We worked hard at it, but I'd say we've been successful.
Here's to having wonderful friends in our lives that help us "find the fairy tales." I have many. I hope you do too!
