life : just try

Hi Everyone -

Thank you so much for the lovely comments about Helen & Charlie's wedding mementos and your good wishes. I'm going to print the post & comments so they can read them.

I read about 47-year old, unemployed Susan Boyle today in the newspaper. She is a contestant on Britains Got Talent and sings like an angel. It just goes to show you not to judge a book by its cover and that it's never too late to live your dream, if you try.

Have a nice weekend!

xo, Cindy

I love what you said about it not being too late to live your dream...if you try. She is such an inspiration to so many people...and is exactly what people need to look up to!

Thank you for your sweet comment. Ms. Candace Rose will feel a whole lot better when Gma does too.

Love your photo, this peony is just gorgeous. Hope the family is doing better, and that you and Scott have a great weekend :)
