HAPPY BIRTHDAY EILEEN



I am not sure why the picture fixed itself to the snow scene but it did. I tried to undo it and reposition it, but it wont separate. Oh well. My wishes for YOU EILEEN are heartfelt and true - that this day, January 14th I celebrate you - your birth and your life!! So many lives have been inspired and given hope and known love because of you. YOU are writing chapters of your grand children's lives that are SO precious and so life-giving. YOU are a gift to the world. I feel SO honored to be part of that world and to receive the gift of you in blog land and in friendship.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY EILEEN"

Nice post for Eileen, Gail...

I'm glad the removal of the falling snow at my blog helped your viewing of it. I just returned from a real walk in the snow...followed some turkey tracks!

Gail said...

Great post my friend, love all my blogging friends but the village is really special to me....Hugs

Gail said...

HI Bernie-

ya, our 'Village' is special for sure. I think there are a few Villagers that are not ones I follow nor am I theirs - hopefully in the months ahead I can join all the Villager's blogs.

Love to you my friend
Gail
peace.....

The honor is mine, Gail, for you and all my wonderful friends in Blogland, it is a privilege to know you, and to follow your blog and to have you follow mine!
And you are a 'villager' for sure, and so is anyone else who so desires.
Your followers are like extended family, and my followers that you don't know are the same for you, we're all connected one way or another.
I gain so much just from reading the comments of other bloggers, it really is an amazing Blessing!

Thank you for such a beautiful tribute, it's a fabulous birthday gift! I love it! I love you!
Eileen

Love you

considering all the snow YoU have had, I think the picture is very appropriate!
Happy birthday Eileen!

Gail said...

Love Gail

Hi Gail-
I am so humbled by your heartfelt comment today on my blog. Honestly, if you knew how often I think of you during my days you might worry I am a stalker :-) I hate that you endured so much betrayal from an institution that should have been a place of refuge and I hate it is the same institution I belong to.
Sharing your story I am sure will help others know they are not alone. Thank you...for always taking the time to stop by and say hello.
Bless you...
Stephanie

Hi Gail...The reason you couldn't separate the photo from the background is that is is now "one" photo...and can't be separated. The photo of Eileen is one from her blog...and the photo of the snow is one she took and put on her blog...and the photos are merged together into one photo.
Your words to Eileen are so sweet. I love all of our villagers...and find comfort, joy, peace, love, and compassion in and through blogging. Anyone who wants to be a member of the Village is welcome. The more of us that love and support each other, the better.
Many smiles to you, Gail...
Jackie

HI JACKIE-TEACHER"S PET

Thanks for taking the time to "splain" about the combined photo. I truly thought it was me and my computer skill, or, lack there of!! :-)

And our "Village" is so amazing, amazing indeed.

Love to you
Gail
peace....
