Musical pairing – Angel by Sarah McLachlan

This is one of those posts I’m both happy and sad about writing; happy, grateful and blessed to be able to help out a friend and yet sad at the circumstances under which this guest post is happening. I met Monet several months ago when she left a comment on one of my posts – something along the lines of how beautiful our photography is, that she loved the recipe, etc. So I headed over here discovered a lovely blog filled with fictional stories as well as stories about her family . . . oh yes, and I also found glorious baked goods . . .

Pretty, expressive brown eyes, long brown hair and a smile that melts your heart; she’s warm, gentle and caring . . . but has suffered enormous loss over the last year including the unexpected death of a nephew and his mother, Monet’s sister, in a terrible car accident about 2 weeks ago. Monet lives in Texas and I live in Indiana and while I would like nothing better than to personally take her a meal, several other friends and I are writing guest-posts so that she can have a bit of time away from her blog to get her bearings again.

Head over to Monet’s site and leave her a comment; then grab the recipe for these Apricot-Walnut Scones – they are wonderful!




  1. You were such a blessing. I just read through all the guest posts that people did for me, and it nearly made me cry. You are a beautiful woman, inside and out, and the love in your heart pours out in each of your posts. I hope you have a wonderful week, my friend. Much love!

  2. You are such a sweetheart!

  3. So nice of you Deb. For all of the fun we can have meeting people via Twitter and our blogs, we also face dealing with their heartache and this one has been hard. I’m sure your efforts and lovely post are a wonderfully soothing moment for this young woman who has had too much tragedy; maybe others helping her bear it will truly help her through it.

  4. Beautiful guest post. Lovely words and beautiful recipe!

  5. I know from personal experience how much what you are doing helps. Just the gesture of offering to guest post and send love and kind, soothing words means so much and does indeed help the start of a healing process. The scones are the perfect comfort food when one needs a hug and a friend.

  6. It was a shock to hear about Monet’s family tragedy on that day. These scones are like a comforting hug from a friend … more than words can express,

  7. The power of the internet in force as we forge real friendships with what were only “virtual” friends before. Lovely post and recipe.

  8. What a beautiful post and thoughtful gesture, she’s got a lot of great friends to help her through this tragedy.
