Monday Morning Flowers!

Hi everybody!

Sorry I have been away from Blogland.

All is well. 

I've just been busy with school and life!

Hope you enjoy these flowers.

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Each day I learn more
Than I teach;
I learn that half knowledge of
Another's life
Leads to false judgement;
I learn that there is surprising kinship
In human nature;
I learn that it's a wise father who
Knows his own son;
I learn that what we expect we get;
I learn there's more good than evil in
This world;
That age is a question of spirit;
That youth is the best of life
No matter how numerous the years;
I learn how much there is to learn.

If only all bloggers returned so gracefully after an absence.

Great poem. I feel that way about nature, too. It is a wonderful teacher and friend. I just wish I wasn't allergic to it.

Hey there, Betty! May I just say that if you're not here processing life that perhaps life is going along very well ... and that's a really good thing :)
