Guest Heart Thursday #218


Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -
A Place to Share YOUR Heart!

Thank you, sissie Beth, for posting Guest Heart Thursday for the past couple of weeks while I was unable to function. I appreciate you more than I can say!

My heart has been warmed by the thoughts, prayers, and comments sent my way from Blogland.
They are working.
I am humbled by so much love from my heart-family! I know so many of you are suffering from chronic pain yourselves, and I am in awe at how you have drawn me into your love.
My back/shoulder/arm is better, and my doctor says I can go back to light duty, and even spend a few minutes on the computer each day ... unless my hand goes numb again.

With that in mind, I must keep my ramblings short.

I look forward to getting better soon - and being able to take more time to visit all my friends and family in Blogland!

Let the heart search begin (again)!!!


As always - a huge thank you to all who found hearts last week. I can't wait for you to link up today ... and show everyone the amazing hearts you found in your world this week!!!

Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -

Hello again, friends.  This is big sister Beth posting for Clytie.  She is still not feeling well.  I would appreciate your prayers for healing in her neck and arm.  She is in a lot of pain.  It is not easy to watch my sweet Sis suffer.

So, I went on a heart search and found a wonderful website, Slow Mom.  The last entry was a heart scavenger hunt.  Below is a sampling of the wonderful hearts I saw.

Guest Heart Thursday #216


Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -
A Place to Share YOUR Heart!

Good morning heart lovers!  This is Clytie's sister, Beth. I'm posting for her today because Sissy has a pinched nerve in her neck, which is causing her terrible pain in not only her neck, but her arm and fingers.  She is experiencing numbness and can't sit at the computer for any more than a few moments at a time.

Please pray for her quick recovery.  She went to the doctor yesterday, and she says, with the anti-inflammatory, that she's feeling a little better--but it will be a long process.


Last week, Sissy, the twins and I went to the beach.  Ah, what fun we had.  Sissy and I both caught this little girl running across the sands toward the ocean.  I believe this was her first glimpse of the sea.  If you look closely, you can see the sand is full of hearts.


The beach was beautiful--with fantastic clouds and balmy temperatures.


Of course, walking on the beach with Sissy means hearts just magically appear!

Have a lovely day everyone--thank you for your prayers for Clytie's quick recovery.  She is so dear to me and to so many--a great encourager and laughter maker.  My sweet Friend for life--and yours too!

Mom was cutting up some peppers yesterday when she carefully placed a small piece of it in my hand.

I don't know which was sweeter ...
The tiny little heart ...
Or the delight on mom's face!

Thank you, mom, for sharing your heart!

I adore this postcard Dorothy posted on her blog, "Coffeedoff's CoffeeBreak".
It makes me smile!!!

Thank you, Dorothy, for sharing your heart!

Guest Heart Thursday #214


Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -
A Place to Share YOUR Heart!


In two days, my FAVORITE ARTIST IN THE WORLD celebrates a birthday.
So today I am going to share a bit of her past art ...

HA HA SISSIE!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BETH!!!!!


This is an amazing pencil sketch Beth made back in 1972.
If you enlarge it, and really start to look, you will see so much more than just a still life!!!
There is a face hidden here, and a heart, and ... well, what do you see?


When we were growing up, Beth kept a book of her artwork and writing.
As a temperamental teenager, she threw it away.
Because I've always been in awe of her work, I rescued it!
It seems like even back then, she included hearts in her artwork!!!

Beth got her book back this year ... I feel so privileged to have been it's guardian for all these years!


But she will NOT be getting back this little feller ... because this is one she gave to ME back in the 1980's!
(That's a real leaf, by the way!)


Please visit Beth at her art blog, "Beth's Artworx" ... to see what she's been up to lately.
And to wish her HAPPY BIRTHDAY on Saturday!
Her artwork has only gotten better ... her imagination richer!!!

Thank you, sissie, for sharing your art.
And for sharing your love.
And for sharing your friendship.
And for the inspiration you bring!
Most of all, thank you for sharing your heart!!!

As always - a huge thank you to all who found hearts last week. I can't wait for you to link up today ... and show everyone the amazing hearts you found in your world this week!!!

I can't believe I just woke up - to a dog in my face.
I NEVER sleep in this late!
Especially on a work day.

But I don't want to miss your hearts!!!
So I am going to post a couple of links for you to visit today - I hope you enjoy!

Meanwhile ... I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!!!



Arija posted some amazing pink dahlia photos a while back ...
My eye was caught by a bright pink dahlia ...
With incredible hearts!
If you go to this post over at "Garden Delights", and scroll down to the fourth and fifth photos down ...
You will be amazed as well!!!

Thank you, Arija, for sharing your heart!


And still more gorgeous hearts can be found over at "An English Girl Rambles", where Denise posted some wonderful photos of some violets ... with gorgeous hearts!

Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -

I fell in love with this beautiful ferny heart, with its attendant little stem heart underneath - that Laura posted on her blog, "Shine the Divine: Creativity is a Spiritual Practice".

Laura has been hosting "I Heart Macro", and I've sooo enjoyed visiting her and the amazing links featured each week!

Thank you, Laura, for sharing your heart!
And thank you for being a huge inspiration in my life!
And thank you, too, for hosting I Heart Macro!


I followed one of the links to "I Heart Macro", and came across this absolutely gorgeous Bleeding Heart flower that Villrose posted on "Villroses Hage".
Bleeding Hearts are some of my favorite flowers!
Hmmmm, I wonder why that would be?

Thank you so much, Villrose, for sharing your heart!


Due to a little, uh, drainage issue we've been having, we've had to haul some gravel.
My neighbor, Amber, was helping shovel and dump the heavy stuff.
Along the way, we all picked up interesting river rocks out of the huge pile ...
I had to smile when Amber handed me this one.
A perfect little heart!

Thank you, Amber, for sharing your heart!
And thank you for helping, too.

Screen Door Heart

We have one of those screen doors that click together with magnets ...
It works wonderfully, but only lasts a year or so (good thing they're cheap!), and it's almost time to replace last year's with a new one.

I hated to do it, though, when I found this!

Yummy Sandwich Heart


The other day I was making a sandwich for lunch ...
When I came across this air bubble in my bread ...

Eat Your Heart Out ...
Takes on a whole new meaning!!!

Well he's done it again ... Jose found yet another heart!
Unfortunately, this one is not so pretty as some of the others he's posted ...
And will probably be covered up soon, along with all of the other graffiti.
(I love this staircase, though, don't you?)
To see more of Jose's gorgeous world, check out "Lisbon and the Sunny Coast".

Thank you, JM, for sharing your heart!


Look at this gorgeous cloud heart Cloudia linked up the other day - it's one of the most perfect cloud hearts I've seen!!!
Cloudia's blog, "Comfort Spiral" is full of gorgeous photos, quotes and more - when you visit be prepared to spend a lot of time checking it out (and then you can say you visited Hawaii today!!!)

((on a personal note, Cloudia, I love your name!!! - it brings back lots of good memories from when I was in Germany and "Clytie" didn't translate well. Most of my German coworkers called me "Cloudia"!!!))

Thank you, Cloudia, for sharing your heart!
(and, for a few years, your name!)


I love finding hearts on Debbie's blog, "It's All About Purple".
Do you see the heart here?
Look at the way this adorable squirrel is holding its treat ...
Those little paws are in the shape of a heart!!!

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing your heart!

Alan no longer has the motorcycle ...
But he still has the beautiful lady!

And I believe he also still has that HAT!

Mothers Day Postcard


I love this postcard of a mother polar bear with her new cub. 
With Mother's Day right around the corner, I thought this was perfect!
Where's a heart, you ask?
Well, if you really stretch your imagination, I suppose this mother bear's face is kinda-sorta heart shaped!
But most of all ... this beautiful picture warms MY heart!


I'm linking this up with Beth's "Postcard Friendship Friday"!

((P.S. sissie ... just you wait til it's YOUR turn to celebrate another year!!!))

Judy captured my heart long ago with her incredible photography, and her blog, "Lilac Gate".

Earlier this week, Judy posted a bunch of pictures of her hoya plant which was "blooming its heart out". And if you look carefully at these floret clusters ... you will see several of the florets really do have hearts hiding right there in plain sight!!!

Thank you, Judy, for sharing your heart!
