Spring Is Just Around The Corner!

So glad that Spring is just around the corner, even though we still have nearly a foot of snow 
on the ground and more to come this Friday.
The end is in sight and I'm dreaming about what I will plant in the garden.

The lovely model is from Pixabay and all the other elements are from Mischief Circus in their
Monthly Mischief March 2018 Collection.

Always There


Done for Take A Word's weekly challenge. This week's theme - "Friendship"
Thanks to Ryan C. Wilks for the poem and Pixabay contributor vargazs for the image of the children.


 You're always there.
When I am sad, mad
or just having a bad day,
You're always there.
Doesn't matter what mood I'm in,
You're always there.
Thank you very much,
I really appreciate it.
I love the friendship we share
but most of all I love you.
You're always there
The sound of your soothing voice
is like the sound of a chorus of angels
that fill my heart with joy
No matter how far or near,
You're always there
Forever in my heart
you will be for years and years.
Through thick and thin we will stand.
You're always there
We will always be friends forever and ever
You're always there
When it comes down to it,
I will always be there for you
You will always be there for me.
