* Golden Moments

By Mynett
Every once in a while there is a Golden Moment......

This one was of a young mum and her son as they watched the sun setting over the lake at Dunham Massey. We spent a lovely day there a few weeks ago and this was the moment before heading back to the car to say goodbye for the day. Little Oak had been as good as gold too, enjoying our walks in the beautiful woodland with us and his mum. Another golden momemnt came that evening when our first grandchild was born. It always comes in three's they say so my more recent golden moment was when someone gifted me another year of membership to EPZ..... thank you so very much xxGrinxx

have been busy of late with preparations for Christmas but will be back in full swing very soon to enjoy this wonderful and very thoughtful gift.

Golden Moments are to be treasured

Linda xx

Golden moments don't seem to come around very often so it's nice to see that you have made the most of yours. Cherish it! Smile

Golden moments between good friends
are something to be cherished
and held within your heart
for all time.

for there is no better feeling
than to be with someone
who cares about you unconditionally.

Who does not care what you say
or what you do,
or what you look like at your worst
and when you need a hug or a smile
your friend will be there for you.

to support you,
to guide you
to let you know that love can heal
and show that life is still worth
all its golden moments. Smile

A Poem by Linda but not this Linda. I'm though that if she put her mind to it she could so easily write one. Smile

Kate, thank you so much for your comment, this image was in my local club comp and the Judge did not get it........ he ripped it apart and it got the lowest score of the night, he could not see what the black blob on the right was at all - perhaps a horse....???? so your comment, along with all the others just goes to show he should go to spec savers, and retire.
