among the wildflowers

It is hard to believe that one year ago today, our dear Lisa went on to a better place. I will never forget what an honor it was to know her. Going through old comments has a mixture of happiness and sadness. She was such a special person and her words could always make anyone's day.
I will never forget the sadness in hearing the heartbreaking news.


She was the sunshine in blog land.



Lisa showed us what it was like to have fun...


...and how to be stylish.


She was always positive and always an encourager.


She had the biggest heart and her love and care of other people and the environment was an inspiration.


And she knew just how to make everyone smile.


I know she is swinging with angels now.


Our dear Bumpkin, you are missed every day.

Dearest, I do not know who this person is, but as I followed the link you provided, I saw what had happened. My mom died of the same disease.

It is stunning how we make a community here in Blogland that is truly special. I don't know....someone with a critical eye might say that it is easier for us to be such good friends with people we can't see...maybe. But why is it that with people we CAN SEE that we lack this wonderful communication that we build in Blogland!!! It works both ways doesn't it? I am grateful for all the dear hearts that have show how to live and communicate. You are one of them. Thank you for asking about my art and writing. This has been an INPUT summer. I have read much, learned much through observation, but I have yet to OUTPUT. That will come, and in the next 16 days, I will have quiet time before school starts again. I hope to at least try to write a poem.

Thank you for your care and sweet friendship. I truly means the world to me!

GROSSES BISES! Anita

Oh Shawna. This is such a great tribute to Lisa--I left Lori (wildflowers) a note today telling her I still look back through my posts for Lisa's comments. She was such a bright light.
