Yesterday, the amazing Ces honored me with a very special award she created in honor of our dear friend Deborah of Midlife Poet. Honestly, I don't know how I ended up in this group of amazing women, but I gladly accept the award and pass it on!
Please visit Ces' blog to be see the incredible beauty of her artwork and read her inspiring posts. Below is part of what she had to say.
“So today I am planting another tree. The Quercus shumardii or Shumard Oak. It is a handsome large tree with straight axis and broad, rounded open crown. It withstands strong hurricane winds, extreme heat, is tall and straight and just plain beautiful. I have more trees to plant but rest assured those who have virtual trees and acorns planted and distributed in their honor have one common virtue, they are loyal friends regardless of race, creed, political affiliations and geography. Here, I honor womanhood and friendship and there is nothing more wondrous a blessing for anyone than for a friend who came and never left your side.”
Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest,
but who came and never left your side.
