X for a Kiss or a Wish

Took this photo sitting at my desk today.
Lots of April showers so far this month! And little
sprouts here on the pear tree. And X's can be kisses or
wishes, right? So I made a wish!
To succeed in life, you need three things:
a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
Reba McEntire


  1. And eyes to see wishes everywhere! ;D

  2. RAIN! Lots of it and MORE to come! Pretty picture.

  3. nice pic betsy...i like kisses and wishes and may yours come true...i like that reba quote too!

  4. Jill ~ at least it's making everything green! School tomorrow..are you ready? I most certainly am. lol.

  5. Love the pic and the quote. A backbone is required for sure!

  6. I totally agree with those three, I would say you have them all !
    Love the picture, it shows how everything is budding out nicely.

  7. Betsy, So lovely--so perceptive of you to find those perfect "X" branches and make such a lovely post out of it. Wonderful quote--leave it to Reba!!!! Mickie :)

  8. The foot bone's connected to the ankle bone, the ankle bone's connected to the leg bone, the leg bone's connected to the knee bone, the knee... umm... bone... umm...


  9. such a nice photo, betsy! rain, rain go away, i say!!!

  10. Yeh think I have all three. Love your sidebar pic. It's really hard to take a nice shot of yourself. Raining her too and we love it.

  11. We sure do need all those bones all the time. And the kiss of dew on the pear tree looks cool. Fantastic picture.

    We rarely get enough rain out here and would gladly take a few days of yours.

    God bless.

  12. It is amazing to think of the significance of that most basic of shapes - two lines crossed over. You can take whatever the most basic trait that defines humanity you choose (be it love, hope, religious faith or whatever) and somewhere along the line you can find a cross symbol.

  13. Beautiful photo!!! Great capture!!
    I am with you on the wish!!!
    We need rain here so I will take yours. We have so many fires burning out of control due to the high winds. Yikes!!!!

  14. Reba makes a very good point! love the "x" photo! blessings ~ tanna

  15. While aren't you being observant today
    As all I do is sit here and play
    Yes it is raining here too
    Even had flurries last night I tell you
    Oh and I really agree with the quote
    But on the first note
    I'd rather find a magic lamp
    Preferably some place not damp
    Then some wish bone
    Or a pine cone
    Oh and did you notice Brian Rhymed
    Such a fun time

  16. sweet!

    like that reba quote! how true!!


  17. How sweet! I love being able to see sweet messages from heaven like those little branches. Reba is right-on too. Love your insights and humor Girl! Have a blessed day.

  18. Baino ~ I agree...you DO have all three! xo

  19. Pat ~ haha...I bet Brian didn't even know he did that!

  20. Beautiful shot, Betsy....
    I love Reba quotes. She was asked who her favorite designer is and she replied....Levi!! lol that's my kind of girl!

  21. nanny ~ she does seem to be a down-to-earth, wise woman..and beautiful, too!

  22. Your personal style shows all three... your "wishbone, backbone and funnybone".

    Great combination.

  23. Just can't get caught up since our company from Texas... Seems like I'm a day late or a dollar short.

    I love your quote, and your and that camera have a special love affair. Beautiful shot of that drop of rain.

  24. Thanks, Wanda. I seem to do better with the zoom lens than the micro. And I still need to read the book after all these months. ha.
