Beauty. . .

“I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.”~Anne Frank

As I sit outside here on my little balcony and watch birds coming to my bird feeder, I feel thankful for all the beauty of the earth when sometimes it would be so easy to see the negative.  Springtime has definitely arrived here in Central Texas.   We had a big thunderstorm yesterday.  We are in need of the rain so no complaints here!  Hope things are going well in your little corner of the world, sweet friends!

Listen to the chorus of the birds. . .Relax.   I love to sit on my little balcony each morning and drink a hot cup of coffee and watch the day unfold.  It is such a blessing to see the beauty of our world and take a few minutes each day to savor the moment.  I hope you have had the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of nature and the loveliness of our world, sweet friends.  Wishing a blessed and happy week ahead.

Somewhere over the rainbow…

blue birds fly.  Birds fly over the rainbow.  Why then, oh, why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why can’t I?   I think the lyrics of this wonderful song catch the essence of childhood so well.  The feeling of endless possibilities that lie ahead for us.  I had a magical childhood and am so thankful for the innocence and joy of growing up as I did in the 1950’s and early 1960’s.

Maybe this is one reward for growing older:  the lovely memories from days gone by.  I still like to make happy memories with my grandchildren.  They are such a blessing in my life.  They keep me young for sure.  As we stroll down memory lane together, dear friends, I hope you have some happy memories, too.  Love and blessings to you!
