Color me Red
bathed in sunshine
all on a winter’s day

My first Amaryllis explodes in a glorious display that defies February’s chill!
Who knew it would look exactly like the picture tucked inside the cellophane wrapped bucket it came in?
A piece of picture perfect make-my-day eye candy!
Never underestimate …. The Power of Red

She put on her Red dress.
It still fit perfectly.
Even after all these years.
The belt still buckled into the same hole that showed the most wear.
Years of feeling
Worn out
Less than
And just plain frumpy

 Dissolved in a moment
Simply because
2 marriages, 2 kids and 2 grandkids later….

The Red dress still fit
