I have something old and something new, something delicate and something strong.
My daughter gave me a lovely necklace for Christmas that I coveted for a long time. It’s silver, turquoise and sweetly delicate, with a tiny bird on the dangle section. As strong as the necklace is, its appearance is as delicate as a thread.
With the fine look the necklace has, I paired it with some vintage, wooden spools of thread for the photo.
While the spools have a hefty look, the thread has a delicate look, as does the necklace.
Can something as dainty and delicate as a thread be strong? Even as strong as a wooden spool? 🙂
If you have a friend, parent, spouse, child, partner or someone you care about, you know the threads that bind us are very strong indeed. In a true relationship those threads will not break. They may fray a bit, but they will hold strong. And with love and care they can be repaired. Friendship, love and caring are the threads that connect people all over the world. Strong? You bet.

“Friendship is the golden thread that ties the hearts of all the world.”
that’s a wonderful quote.
and I guess:
WordPress is the spool, blogger friends is the thread around it.
and THAT is the thread that ties the hearts of the world.
hearts like mine and yours, and all the wonderful followers
