If I could hug a butterfly...
This Swallowtail would be the would be the one...
She blessed me with her presence...
On the lovely Echinacea posie...
If you look close you can see that her wing is torn...
He she been in battle?...
No matter...
Her wing span is strong and wide...proud is she...
She rests for a moment...
She's not afraid to share her beauty...
If I could hug a butterfly, it would be her, because she would be my hero...
Much love, jonnie dee

I'm crying again...
I was in my car and in line, waiting for my food...
The car ahead of me had wonderful and positive bumper sticker messages...
One of them said "born again and again and again"
There were other sayings and they made me smile...
Giving me hope and a reminder of all the good in our world..
A reminder to love one another...
I thought about a prior post I wrote mentioning random acts of kindness...
As I pulled up to the window to get my order, the young man gave me a most generous smile and said "You are all set" as he handed me my order....
I looked at him in wonder... He said "The car ahead of you paid for your food"
I could hardly creak out a thank you through my tears and cracking voice....
I was crying again....
Changing subjects...
On mother's day, my sweet daughter in law, Megan Millhouse , gave me this picture she painted...
My thoughts were:
That it was most beautiful and I grateful for her loving heart...
I also thought...this dandelion, in seed, is like a mother, or someone with a generous heart...
The seeds blow into the wind, as do the kind gestures and loving words do, or random acts of kindness, planting of seed of goodness and most often taking root and creating more....
God is great!...
Three people's hearts were touched today and I know it made an impact on that young man, just as it did mine...
To the lady in the car that has the bumper sticker that says "Born again and again and again", I thank you for being one of the seeds that plant random acts of kindness...
And Megan, I thank you for this wonderful Mother's Day gift.
I wish you both well, much love, jonnie dee #tsht #touchsomeoneshearttoday

This is a lovely lesson and reminder that came to me this weekend.
He smiled at me as he was sharing his story.
 
I noticed the "I have smiled alot" smile wrinkle lines around his eyes. He had a strong peace about him, sharing that the doctor's dire forecast had dented his armour but for a short time. He said either way, whether I live or die, I know where I'm going.
 
Emotions were simmering inside me, I was joyfully envious.
 
That morning I was overwhelmed with my woes. My back hurt, I lost my keys, I was late for my craft show, it was going to rain, I was cold, my grandgirls were trying to get me to adopt a dog there, which tearily reminded me that my best furry friend died last week and so much more life stuff that clouded my mind.
 
The strength and faith, these two friends shared, was just what I needed to hear on that cold windy morning.
 
I won't say who you are, but I thank you for stopping at my booth and sharing your story. It has touched my heart. #tsht
 
I wish you well and I wanted you to know the imprint you left upon me. I thank you.
We are surrounded by courage and kindness, yet often we overlook it because of the craziness and uncertainty going on in our world today.
 
I also have a friend, who has a sick husband and he recently told her that he would not die until she gets herself a house. That also touched my heart.
 
In a me me world, these stories touche me.
 
I thank God for these lessons. I needed to hear them. I am grateful. I hope these words touch your heart today. Be well, my friends, much love, jonnie dee #tsht #touchsomeoneshearttoday

I have a heart for dehydrating...
Today I am dehydrating organic honey crisp apple slices...
I love it when  shapes find themselves in my pictures and in my projects...
Hearts showed up in my apple slices...
I'm thinking about making my own apple cider vinegar...
Has anyone made their own apple cider vinegar and do you have any tips?...
I'd love it if you'd share...
Much love, jonnie dee
