“Everyone who got where he is has had to begin where he was.”~ Robert Louis Stevenson
I never pass a magnolia tree that I don’t think about my best friend Angie Bliss Fanning. She had a beautiful magnolia tree in her yard. The goats liked it as much as she did. They showed their love by eating it to the ground. I’m sure it was delicious. She no longer has goats. Today is Angie’s 52nd birthday. When I passed this magnolia blossom I did as she asked; I stopped, took in the biggest breath of fragrance I could muster, and I smiled.
“What a beautiful day! So much to be thankful for, all of you make my life happy! So, my birthday wish is for ALL of us to continue to love and support each other, to have as many belly laughs as we can handle, remain healthy, and remember to take the time to stop and smell the flowers!!!” ~ Angie Bliss Fanning via facebook
