Two Kinds of Velvet, Greetings and Love

1. Plump chickens roam the front lawn of a farmhouse. They wear dark, velvet colored feathers of burgundy and black. It's an idyllic scene and would make a beautiful, pastoral painting.
2. The buds of the magnolia blossoms are encased in a green velvet shell. Each time I pass the little tree, I rub the softness between my fingers.
3. I'm there for a meeting in the front room, but I hear the lady of the house washing dishes in the back kitchen so I pop in to say a quick hello. I get a big hug, soapy wet hands and all.
4. A note is tucked into this little guy's lunch box. It reminds me that each child is someone's precious treasure.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.
I LOVE YOU. 
YOU MAKE ME SMILE.
Love, Mom
