Valentine’s Day at the beach…

can you hear the waves breaking

can you hear the waves breaking

Hearts and flowers were the theme of the day on Tumblr yesterday, on my blog as well as  thousands of others.  Even though I was sad (5 Valentine’s Days since Don died) I did my best to enter in to the spirit of the occasion…

I went to the beach!

Love of the sand and the surf was something Don and I shared, so I went to the beach and looked for a little sandy, surfy love!

I found…

hearts at the beach

hearts at the beach

perfect sandy hearts

AND

a couple obviously in love

a couple obviously in love

a couple so very obviously in LOVE…

and remembered, happily, when it was Don and I…

enjoy your Saturday,

Theanne

RIP Ralph Waite

when I think of you Mr. Waite I think “The Waltons

Set as it was in the mountains of rural Virginia, it and you epitomized the words family and home…growing up as I did in rural Virginia The Waltons really struck a nerve with me!

I thank you for the memories and for sharing your abilities as an actor and director.

Ralph Waite  1928 – 2014  RIP

“good night Mr. Waite”

lost and found…

lost love

lost love

some days we may feel that love has left us

lots of love

lots of love

other days, hopefully, we will realize we are surrounded by love

“Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much
performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”

 healing thoughts today for Tom Brokaw

 

looking for hearts…

perhaps you will find a heart in a tree

a tree bark heart

a tree bark heart

 a cloud in the sky

heart in a clouc

heart in a cloud

painted on a building

heart on a building

heart on a building

on a children’s toy box

heart on a toy box

heart on a toy box

on a parking barrier

heart on a parking barrier

heart on a parking barrier

so many hearts to find, so many hearts to see

I found my heart here

my forever friend Don

my forever friend Don

when I didn’t even know I was looking 🙂
