When I read these words the other day, I was immediately uplifted, and felt an intense longing to be my best self. I wanted to find any hidden good qualities within myself and be sure to live them every day.
Those words have stayed with me and I look at them and think of them all the time. I cherish these words, because they have a very real effect on me. They seem to shake me awake, and peel away any negativity I have been harbouring.
I shared them here, hoping they would speak to your heart, as well!
I gathered up a little nature table this morning:
1. Elderberry blossom 2. European Columbine 3. Hatched chrysalis 4. Hollowed out walnut shell
5. Autumn-y cherry leaves 6. Four-leaf clover 7. Lady's Mantel 8. Wild Privet
It's a funny thing: on exactly this same day last year I found (and blogged about) autumn-y leaves that I had discovered. It seems the cherry trees send down a few colourful leaves while their fruits are ripening. This is one of the things I love about blogging: you keep a record of the goings-on in nature and actually find a very prominent rhythm. And I love learning about nature's patterns.
That sweet little squirrel stopped by again:
So cute! I really should give him a name. Any suggestions? I know Gladys Taber named her frequent visitor Tiny Tim after the Beatrix Potter character.
Wishing you a lovely day.
And may every virtue in you blossom, and every hidden good quality in you shine forth!
