There is Beauty All Around

When There's Love at Home.
 Peace and plenty here abide
Smiling Sweet on Every side.
(The flowers above are my Mother's Day Flowers from Derek,
The ones below are Derek's tulip garden.

 Time doth softly, sweetly glide
 When there's love at home.
 All the earth's a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,

When there's love at home.
(Love at Home by John Hugh McNaughton, 1829-1891)
23 years ago Derek and I got married.  It was a beautiful, sunny, and happy day.  I am very thankful for that day and for every day since then that I have had with Derek. 
 My thanks to Derek for his loyalty, humor, and love.
Happy Anniversary!
