So Strong..

The power of nature is amazing...one can feel very small and insignificant..

But always remember,when you spread your arms wide and hug your loved ones..(and maybe a tree for a change)you can feel a power thats bigger than life itself..

Because there's something inside so strong
And you know that you can make it...even when life isn't always fair..

Wishing you all a strong and powerful weekend..

Oh dear Dutchess.....your picture is sweet as can be....this is your baby....and this message is so well appreciated AND TIMELY! We all need this word, but I know a particular person right now, who needs to hug a tree, and ME!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, MILLE FOIS! Give that darling daughter of yours a hug from a crazy French-speaking Mexican-American woman who loves Italian cuisine, plays the Celtic harp and enjoys Jewish humor and Dutch art....oh! She might get scared off! Teeeheee!

I couldn't be happier than to have YOU as my first guest for our little soirée...and that sweet little mouse....she will have to whip out her little spy kit and do some investigating on that cloud!!! I hear about the troubles up there in the skies over my beloved Europe, but I know that with Miss Moussie's pull and influence, her little package will arrive at just the right moment...oh I am so honored and tickled that all of you at Hilltop have plotted and planned something sweet and unforgettable. Do stay for more cake and let's eat it all!!!!! GROSSES BISES MA BELLE, Anita
