Flowers from my husband

Now I'm sixty. And it seems to be the best time in my life. It has never been this great. Not even in my childhood. There was a veil of sadness over my life that isn't there any more and that I got rid of not until I was in a mature age. It did not even concern me! I just shared the trauma of my family.
My parents in law gave me a value certificate for a clothing shop for larger sizes. Black jeans, raspberry top, sky blue cardigan. While trying things on, I noticed that I lost weight. One size per year. Just through renouncing on sugar and taking dry fruits instead. -- I started a new embroidery: "The path to the truth", as J named it.

Eva, congratulations on reaching SIXTY ! ! ! !
I love every b/d, I hit 69 at the end of '08, as I know you will.
Lovely flowers from a lovely hubby.
Your needlework is exquisite, as usual.
Enjoy your new year!

Oh, dear, I have not caught up till 3 days later and I missed your big 6-0.
I see that it was happy and the flowers are beautiful! Wish I could lose weight -and I don't even eat sweets.

So glad you are in the best time of life; I expect having found your soul mate has something to do with it.
Wishing you a decade that gets better and better each day.
love,
Rayna
