I attended a delightful fund raiser luncheon today at Churchill Downs with Mary and Leona (second photo). It was a benefit for Mom's Closet Resource Center in Louisville. Mom's Closet was founded by Sheila Day (wearing silver hat in third photo), wife of retired jockey Pat Day (bottom photo). It is an organization to help single mothers in the Louisville area.
We did not come home big winners on the horse races, but had a great lunch and a fun day with new friends and old friends.
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
