You Followed Me Home

rapt_in_roses photo stream

Hello Old friend.It's been a while.I've looked for you in the distance and yet you choose to stay hidden.Each day I hope,... perhaps today will be the day my friend will come back to me.....I'm just not the same with out you.Your encouragement keeps me going,pushing me,guiding me.

In the early morning,as the kids eat breakfast,I take a peak from the kitchen window,hoping and praying...perhaps today will be the day......And today, a smile crosses my face as I see you standing proud before me..........."The bitter cold has kept me away", you whisper,"....but I promise you I am never far from you."

And so as I walk the kids to school,you begin to weave in and out of the trees... trying to find your way to me....and even from a distance... your beauty clears my mind, helps me to enjoy and appreciate the time we have together.......At last,.... the trees clear,..and you find your way to me,...wrapping your gentle warm arms around me.
Thank you friend.

You followed me Home.

As always,thank you so much for stopping by

Hi Cat, your website is beautiful and so are all your pieces. Would you please come out to Arizona and build me a website LOL? I'm gong to post you on my website right now with all your information. I think I'm addicted to another CAT.

Michelangelo said "May you always desire more than you can accomplish" and your blog makes me realize that he was wise indeed. Every time I visit here my desire and inspiration to create grows as does my knowledge and I thank you for that.

Hi Cat, what a beautiful post! So loyal and loving.
It is so spiritual and earthly at the same time, understanding both sides.

Thank you for sharing this with me!

Cat, you are amazing. Is there a thing you can't do...? Your writing is moving, and soooo beautiful.


Incroyable, cette photo magnifique ressemble beaucoup à une de Jeff de "Life is beautiful" dans les publications récentes (à farfouiller un peu) ! C'est fou parfois les connexions inconscientes entre blogueurs, c'est souvent que ça arrive !!! Comme quoi le net relie bien concrètement les hommes !!!
Bon dimanche !!!

Hey, you. I am so, so far behind on my blog visiting. But, here it is Valentine's Day and I had to stop by and wish you a great one. Before I do that, though, I wanted to thank you for the poem you "gave" me. I have read your comment again and again. Thank you.

And, for you, a Valentine's wish from me:

On this day, may you know, really know how much you are loved. May you recognize love in all it's forms. May you be grateful for the love of children and pets, old friendships and new. May your heart swell with all the beauty this life brings. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend.
