Advice From A Cactus

Get plenty of sunshine

Accentuate your strong points

Be patient through the dry spells

Conserve your resources

Don’t desert your friends

Wait for your time to bloom

Stay sharp

~ Ilan Shamir

>>>>>>>> I'm enjoying the warm weather here in California!

That's all.

      You know how I feel about cacti. The sun.
      I won't lie, it's been dreamy wearing flip flops everyday. No coats. No mitts...you get my drift.
      My mom hugs you back. Thanks for that.

    1. Me too. ME TOO. It is a cheering up plant for me. Always have loved the cactus.
      My mom is in a rehab facility. That's why I'm here, Mona.
      I wrote about it briefly in a letter. You will get it by the weekend.

  9. I love this quote. I hope you're well- just received your post card the other day. California is hopefully giving you some of the desert you miss- tucson gem show is this weekend! I'm headed down there on Monday.. I'll have to cruise around for something that says "lynn." :) Any favorite stones?

  10. I went to the Tucson Gem show once. I miss Tucson, you know that!!
    Yeah, being here is similar. It's warm. It's succulent.
    Thanks for your sweet friendship. You've been my little bird for so long now. ;)
