Encourage one another.

I wish you love.

Some encouragement from Pope Francis during these difficult days:

“Tonight before falling asleep
think about when we will return to the street.

When we hug again,
when all the shopping together will seem like a party.

Let's think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other.
We think about when it will be all a memory but normality will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift.
We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.
Every second will be precious.

Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter.
We will go back to laughing together.
Strength and courage."

Encourage one another,


  1. ❤❤❤ strength and courage

  2. Such comforting words.

    Love you!

  3. Oh Donna, I wish you love back and to all those here commenting, too.
    Looking forward most of all to the hugs from our Grands when we next get to see them. Not taking anything for granted right now...saying I love you to all precious ones. love and prayers, jep

    1. ❤❤❤ love and prayers to you, jep!

    The two things you posted today are such a blessing. I texted my sister to watch the little girl, so amazingly, play the guitar and sing. It is a song that will take her back to our youth and I know she will smile. You are such an encourager for those of us fortunate enough to read your blog. I am like you, an easy homebody, and I love to read, cook, and sew so I am not feeling cabin fever and hopefully won't for a while. Take care and I hope Katie made it home safely.
