"We Wish You Well"

I love these wishes that were from the editors of Good Housekeeping in the December issue of 1951. R.H. and I wish them for all of you:

"We wish you well; we wish you very well."

"We wish that the hand of trouble be stayed and that you be surrounded 
by the evidences of living love."

"We wish the wanderer's return and the quarrel's ending,
and the mending of rents in the fabric of life."

"We wish you the warm fire and the familiar faces..."

"...the smell of spruce and the sound of music."

"We wish you one exquisite moment of pure happiness
and the ability to recognize it as it hastens past."

"We wish you the laughter of children, star shine, and peaceful sleep."

A Very Merry Christmas from Across the Way

    1. Thank you so much, Zack. We do miss her, don't we? If you'll just click on the blog over on my blog roll at Calamity Acres you'll see where Mary Ann lost her pug Gertie today suddenly of a heart attack. That's very hard. Send her your prayers.

      Yes, we'll celebrate again in the morning with a waffle breakfast and maybe Bentley can have a bite. You and Laura have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
      Love you,

  8. Lovely photos and words, Dewena. I'm guessing you've included family photos? What a gorgeous family you have. And so much happiness shows through. Hope your Christmas is filled with blessings.

  9. Beautifully said, Dewena. A Merry Christmas to you and yours!


  10. Hi Dewena,
    Thanks for stopping by Abbey Style Home and I'm happy to see my blog on your blog roll. I'm adding myself to your group of followers and wish you much happiness in the coming year!

  11. Such a lovely sentiment! Thanks for sharing these words of wisdom.

  12. I see Penelope in her sweater - she is a doll! I also have 5 cats. Our little Harriet (wire hair doxie) belonged to my late mother and is very special to us. I am following you also and look forward to visiting.

  13. Dear Sister, I think I have finally learned how to make comments on your blog. Or at least I hope so. I love all you have written, and have been moved to tears on some. I am trying to follow my pathway on " What are you doing for the rest of your life". It truly strikes a chord in my heart. One thing I have learned from reading you blog, is that you have to start somewhere, and take it step by step, even if they are small steps.
