    It’s great that you celebrate an acceptance of everyone’s journey but also praise those who can see the good in the flowering weed in the crevice!

    Yes, we’re the ones that stop to look at that brave weed that pops through the crevice with our own take on it. Excellent quadrille, excellent look at life. Well done.

    Beautiful quadrille, Lynn. 🙂

    Thanks for joining us Lynn and wishing you a good week.
