Doll From France

This doll is very special to me.  It was hand made by my blog friend, Jill, in France.  I put her out to reflect on what's happening in France right now.  This doll is a keepsake given to me a few years ago, and I will look at it and reflect on the people in Nice during this sad time, especially the children.

Sheri, your doll is lovely. We are so sad for Nice...Each of us can make a difference by making our world a better place. We must.....♥

She is lovely...

But the first thing I thought of, when seeing your Subject Line, was the doll, in my post....

And I commend you, for mentioning the latest attack. Seems the rest of Pretty Blog Land, can just go on, as if nothing has happened. Which confuses me. But of course, that is my problem.

Gentle hugs...

What a dainty sweet doll. My heart goes out to all the victims in Nice and their families and to all of us worldwide who are being jolted by attacks by Islamic terrorists. These attacks break our hearts.

Wonderful doll, indeed. Love her curly hair!

It was really warm in Athens these days, so i took the opportunity and visited Tzia island for a few days ;)

Hope you are having an awesome summer time!

Your French style doll is very beautiful Sheri, and what a treasure to have. It is beyond sad what has happened in Nice, and in France generally the past two years. Prayers for them all.

The doll is so sweet, unlike the monster who caused such sadness in Nice… such a tragedy…

Innocence.
An object made by hand, as opposed to the violence at the hands of people who do not understand but NEED grace and healing themselves.

A lovely and perfectly French inspired beauty.

Much love to you dear heart.

Dear Sheri,

What a wonderful gift from France.

I was awake still at 11pm on Friday.. I thought.. I'll just see the late night news and catch up on things.. and to my horror.. saw the whole thing on tv news.. it had just happened.. people were still running on the esplanade.. Horrific ,horrific.. murder.

Poor poor people ..Men, women and children..

A lovely post Sheri..
god bless them all.

Praying to be a light and not let the evil of the world dim that light.

I love your doll with her pretty hair and dress. She looks very French to me.

Prayers are sent every night to all the people that were injured and to the families who lost a loved one. Such terrible things happening in France.

Have a wonderful week Sheri.

Hugs,

The doll is a beautiful keepsake. I always wanted to go to France. My heart goes out to all the victims and their families.

She's beautiful. Truly lovely, and her eyes seem to be all knowing.

Sadly, this violence seems to be a way of life. Now Baton Rouge. Where next?!

Your sweet, sweet doll is a very thoughtful way to symbolize your remembrance and care for the citizens of France.
