Always hold it high.
Look the world straight in the face.                 - Helen Keller

Beautiful quote and flower, Diane... I felt wonderful when we were at Biltmore standing among all of those sunflowers...

I've come to love sunflowers. They grow quite profusely along the highway going past the Kennecott Mine here, which is not really pretty in any fashion. But I think how good and kind they are to provide something so nice and friendly to look at...such service. I always wanted them to grow in my yard when I had one.

BTW,,, I do hope all is well with you and your vacation from blogging is not over something unfortunate. I will miss you..please return in time.
Sending you best wishes for now,
Rosalie

I've always admired Helen Keller for her brave spirit, and in depth, beautiful quotes. This is no exception.
I just read you were leaving for a while, and the post is now gone. I hope to see you back, I will really miss you Diane.

Good advice - not always easy to accomplish, but the sunflower is very encouraging!
