Nature's Wisdom....

The warmth of the sun on a cold winter's day... softly filtering through my kitchen window... casting early morning shadows that dance on the walls... the colors of Nature fill my home... lush greens of Ivy's tender tendrils pull towards the light... the soft beige of petite French flowerpots waiting to be planted...

Delicately woven twigs and grasses make a perfectly feathered nest... tiny faux eggs remind me just how fragile life is... each moment is a gift to be treasured... to enjoy just being "me"... not trying to be like anyone else... I like being "me"... I am unique... and so are you... I shall go about my day doing the very best I can at everything I attempt to do... letting my thoughts drift away to a favorite quote...

"Use whatever talent you possess...
the woods would be very silent if no birds sang
except those that sing the best" ~ Henry Van Dyke

  4. Lovely post, Julie Marie! I think the post is a very gentle reminder that we need to be ourselves...authentic. I read somewhere,

    Such a true post and I have always loved that quote.
    I am ready for warmer days, but really don't want to rush the cooler season since we will have lots of triple digits soon to come.
