Serenity

"Don't let yourself get so busy that you miss those little but important extras in life ~
the beauty of a day...
the smile of a friend...
the serenity of a quiet moment alone.
For it is often life's smallest pleasures and gentlest joys that make the biggest and most lasting difference."

The jar is such a perfect vase. I love the color that comes through it from the light outside. Beautiful scene.

Isn't that the truth. We get so busy in our daily lives that we forget to take a breath and just plain enjoy life and those we love. Thanks for the reminder Jo. Hope your knee is feeling better.
