* resplendent*


*


*
my new word is
R E S P L E N D E N T
in my dictionary it is translated as :
schitterend 
glansrijk
and those are beautiful words in dutch .
and I love beautiful words.
I wonder why I have never seen this word ?
My dream is to 
have beautiful books next to my bed
with poems in english
so I can learn
so much more from the language
than I do now.

when I translate 
SCHITTEREND to english
my book says : SHINING
when I translate
GLANSRIJK to english
my book says :RADIANCE

Well now you know 
it is not so easy at all to choose 
the right words
for what I realy wish to write / say.

In a  blog writing is one thing
but when there is friendship
and there is MAIL ( BY POST )
I mean writing letters ......
well that is a whole other challenge .

How I love it when mister postman
brings me letters or postcards 
from far far away
with beautiful stamps 
and handwritings 
my heart always 
JUMPS OF JOY
when I find such surprises .
and always and always
I learn
I learn from the words 
by the person behind the words 
and
I get to know
the person behind the choosen words

I just love that

SCRUMPTIOUS
coming from and living in THE NETHERLANDS 
english is not my own language
but I do love it very much .
When I started blogging
I choose english because I wanted to learn
and practice and meet people around the world.
Lately I found a list on pinterest with 
WORDS TO USE MORE OFTEN
so that will be my mission ......

I am still on my way back
from A LOT 
but I am getting there .
for long I supposed I was to be my old self again.
But NO NO I was supposed to become 
my old self transformed to a whole new level .

It felt like 
moving to a whole new country
and I did not speak the language
and did not know the habbits
and I knew no-one overthere.
It felt like surviving , hanging-on
not knowing what to do , who to trust .

I never imagened the future , my future 
DID YOU ?

I am making lots and lots of 
felt-heart-garlands to be busy 
and because it gives me GREAT JOY 
to look at them 

working on the colours of my heart 

wishing you lots of SCRUMPTIOUSNESS

Birthday surprises



*


Surprise surprise 
You know how I love mail ....
In the week before my birthday 
I received a lot of mail.
I wanted to wait till my birthday
to open it all 
so I put the mail on a place 
where I could see it 
and looked forward to the birthday.
And than 
on november 2 
I opened the first one 
from my sister 
beautiful card and a sheet of stamps .
Special stamps because there was 
a photo from me on the stamps
my very personal stamps.
My sister knows how I love te send mail .
And than I opened the SECOND ONE and
I could not believe my eyes 
also a sheet of stamps included.
I still believed it was 
accidentally.
And than I opened THE THIRD ONE
and again a sheet of stamps 
And all the other ones TOO.

My daugther was behind this plan .
It was a very big surprise .
I am very happy with all this JOY and love 
And my new year 
started very very happy

and in the end
It's not the years 
In your life that count,
It's the life in your years .

One week from today
november 2 
will be my birthday.
One year ago I was very nervous 
at the end of october 
because I was about to receive a new hip
and 
What I did not even knew at that time
three months later a SECOND new hip .

My children surprised me
with an amazing present last birthday
An IPad .

How I love all those digital divices.
It's amazing what I can do with them.
It has been a great support for me in the last year .

I will be so grateful next Sunday
to have a new birthday 
with my wonderful children and granddaugther
and my new hips of course .

A great and complicated adventure ........


*

*
Just when I accepted
for now
I could not do what I intended 
make a blogpost about 
my son's wedding
because I could not get pictures
from my IPad 
in the blog-post 
I somehow managed
to get one picture overhere

I have NO idea how I managed that........
I have to study more first.
I envie all you for making the most beautiful blogs
With lots of pictures 
But I hope to be able to do that too
Soon

Where to start



*

*
It's been a while .
I had some work to do 
on myself 
I had to work on myself .....
and suddenly
I lost the feeling 
of blogging .

I guess all the changes in my life
needed a new way of living ........

first of all 
I always loved blogging 
and making connections
all over the world
but
like in friendship
there has to be
RECIPROCITY
( I looked this word up in my dictionary so I hope .......)

I now wish 
I could have find the words 
by than 
to tell about it ,
Or just pronounce 
I wont be here for a while 
but I couldn't
and I had NO idea it would take me this long .

But 
I am here and I am back 





And 
next post i'll tell you all
about a wedding 
my son's wedding
