I recently visited St. Xavier church in Tucson where I took the above photo of the statue of Mary dressed in blue. The dress sparkled. The church was built in the 1700s as a Catholic Mission church. It reminds you of the past. If you are ever in Tucson, it's a must see. It's like you are in Spain without needing a passport.
Finally, this is the little silver spoon my talented, creative friend, Rita, made me for me for my birthday. She's a very crafty gal. I will keep this spoon forever, and not because she said nice things about me which I do appreciate, but because when I look at it I feel happy and remember my friend. It doesn't matter what we leave behind, sometimes love is just enough. So while I feel blue I also feel very lucky, too. Life is such a mixture of rain and sunshine.
