Rocks and Roses

....It struck her that that perhaps everyone 
had the ability to see themselves in others. 
Even in the rocks. Even in the roses.
-Holly Lynn Payne, Damascena

I'm glad you're here. 

We're kind of like a family, you know... those of us who come here. You read me, I read your comments, and I think we see ourselves when we look at each other. Rocks, roses and all. Hi there, you.

The roses are blooming and so I picked some and brought them in. But really they're for you. Thanks for sharing my days, my quiet thoughts, my messy life.

Call it Earth Day or Wednesday or whatever you'd like. Today I'm grateful for... and looking at... you.

Let's be friends always, okay?  -Brin

I don't comment much but very much look forward to your entries. I've read your entire blog. I've been reading for 4 years. It's so weird how interested you get in someone's life through a blog. But . . . I do, and I pray for you. Take care, Brin.

Aww. Hi Brin. I have to say, I have loved reading lately...something in your writing is a good way. I like it. Maybe its the hope of spring...and a new home?

Good morning! I love reading your blog, I don't know if you remember, but I was lucky enough to purchase some of your goodies back in the day. I feel connected somehow, and felt the hole when you stopped blogging. SOOO glad to have you back!

We are friends! Thank you for the beautiful roses. I have loved being your friend here since I first 'met' you a few years ago. I am so thankful you invited us in! I always look forward to coming to visit.
