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."

How very true! A smile from someone can certainly brighten the day and a kind word can swell your heart.
Can you see me smiling at you now?

I would love to sit on your bench, and see your world! But I am here, and you are there, and so I will look at my world, and I promise to always share each little magical moment with you.

Hi! Jo,

Yes! I so agree. I try to be still as often as I can.

The sound of birds singing, to feel the sun against your face and the laughter of a children. These are just a few of life's simple pleasures.... but precious indeed! I'm so grateful and thank God for all!

Thank you so much for sharing.

Have a beautiful evening!

Blessings & Hugs,
Marlene

So very true, those words of wisdom -
thank you for sharing them with us!
Your photograph oozes serenity, and a cool spot,
which we all appreciate during those hot summer days.
