My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Monday afternoon musings


This afternoon my daughter and I went for a walk and contemplated our five key ingredients to leading a satisfied life.

This is what we came up with:

  1. A roof over our heads
  2. Clothes on our back
  3. A full belly (We are true foodies !)
  4. Love in our hearts
  5. Friends in our circle

  1. All the right ingredients for a good life. It’s a pity so many people appear to need (want) so much more.

  4. Must of missed this wonderful picture. I want to come visit! Wow what a beautiful place. And an even more beautiful sentiment. It’s so much fun visiting you. A little present just for me wandering around this alternate universe. Hope Chloe is better. I sure needed this and there you were with your gifts.

    • Hi cursedkat,

      Thanks for visiting.

      Perhaps you were already aware of this, but if you’d like to make your name a link so that people can visit your site if they read a comment you’ve left somewhere, just click “users” on your dashboard. Then click “profile”. Scroll down to where it says website and type in your wordpress web address being sure to start with http://www.
