A little bit of Summer 2011

A little bit of Summer this year in the South of France all pulled together in a picture postcard.

Please click on the pictures to get a better view.

At the moment the house is being cleaned, DH is on his way to pick up David and life with its structures, school life, etc. will begin again.

With everything that happened we just have to say - we were blessed!

Just sharing a little poem dear Chris sent to me and I am passing it on to you:

"This is my wish for you. Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so you can believe, confidence when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life."~~Author Unknown

Have a lovely weekend!
