So beautiful Sylvia...good to know your son is on the mend. Nothing harder for a Mom than a sick child. My little girl spent several weeks in the hospital last winter...it was pretty awful for all of us. But she is well now.

Thank you so much for being one of the hosts to make this fabulous celebration of the skies happen...this is my second week joining in and I am just loving it!

Evelyn Howard said...

Great pics and nice words to go with them.
"It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream." - I think sunsets have a tendency to pull me into stillness; and for a while, I lose myself. It makes time stand still for me... but only for a little while :).
