A hand extended in peace, friendship and blessing. What more can we offer or gratefully accept?

Ohhhh, 1,000 years of Peace... So wish it could be true, that would be the greatest gift of all. I will strive in the new year to remember, and act upon this peace...For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind'. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon

A thousand years of peace for you, Gwen.

May you have a bountiful, fun and kind 2013, may the sun shine gently and often, the elements inspire and take you on your creative journeys, and give that adorable critter Pirate a few strokes from the dog walker on a sea fringed edge ♥

Gwen Buchanan said...
