Enter Gates with Thanksgiving~

Welcome to my garden today.
Pick a gate and come on in.

Kick off your boots and sit a spell
I have a little story to tell.

The girls and I were just talkin'
'bout the lady down the street.
So off we went a walkin'
to partake in a meet and greet.

Up, down and around the bend
we wound our way along.
She made sure that we would comprehend,
'To me these babies belong!'

Holding them tightly, ready to protect.
We told her she's a good mother.
And would she entertain a little prospect
That we could be friends with each other.

That is what blogland is to me.
A place where we, protective moms
(of ours or others)
gather, connect and encourage one another.

A woman who fears the Lord shall be praised.
Let her works praise her in the gates.

This last gate is one I would love to have here at RockCandy.

Say hi to Tam at The Gypsy's Corner
when you check out the other Three or More.

Blessings to all

Good Mornin' Candy... I love all the gates... but I think the blue one calls me the most...

and the little girl with her babies... LOL... adorable...

hope you didn't drown yesterday!

I don't think people outside Texas much appreciated my Texas post yesterday... oh well... guess you have to be a Texan to really-really "get it"... ;)

I'm off to your neck of the woods today... Got appointments in SM today... and hoping to get by the thrift shop for treasure hunting if I can get a free hour!?

have a wonderful day! hugs. Dixie
