Lovely pictures and I, too, am so thankful to see and hear "All Things Bright and Beautiful."

Wow, Karen, you have captured some beautiful images. I miss you too! I am just "snowed under" these days with too many obligations for retirement--ha! I still try to hop around occasionally and keep track of my precious friends but don't comment nearly as often as I would like.

I think once September gets here I will have a little more time. I've hired my granddaughter this summer to help me with some long overdue household projects and we are working hard every day all day to try to get this unorganized house back in to order.

I love you and miss you--still looking forward to meeting you one day when you get over this way to see your sis.

Beautiful post and I love your comment on my post about your father.

Betty Jo said...

Karen, thanks so much for backtracking and leaving a second comment! So sorry. That one worked fine, and several after yours. Guess Blogger was in shock, and didn't know what to do with my comments, since I haven't blogged much lately. Have a wonderful weekend! ♥
