Welcome to Friday~~Finding Beauty
or better known as FFB
I was so excited with everyone who joined with us last week. Thank you and Thank you AGAIN!
Each of your posts inspired me.
This week I received such a sweet email– and with Susan’s permission I am going to share it.
I have been reading and watching your blog for months now. I have really enjoyed your photography and sense of humor. But when you announced your new meme I was a bit tired and thought, I just didn’t have time for one more commitment.
You said two things that stuck with me. 1- You said we didn’t have to commit to doing this weekly — only if we found something we thought we could share. And 2– you said Beauty is there whether we notice it or not. If we take the time to notice, our life takes on an enhanced version. It’s no longer typical, it’s lovely and can be extraordinary.
I kept saying that quote over and over in my head. “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Well, it has change already. Saying that quote has changed how I look at my life. It is beautiful and I am noticing it more.
I don’t know if I will participate with you every Friday, but I will try. Just know that you have started something in one person and I thank you for helping me see the beauty in my life and paying attention to it.
Wow… I was touched and very thankful that she had taken the time out of her day to share those feelings .
With all the snow around me lately, even enjoying it like I do; I’m posting some lovely flowers.
Aren’t they beautiful?
But what is most importantly beautiful to me was the thought behind them. My sweet sister in Montana sent these to my mother for her birthday. When “they” say it’s the thought that counts– well it sure does.
I even bought myself some yummy flowers to brighten my new “home” — sure enough they did their job!
Dang if I can’t find it– but I read a blog post this week where a woman was taking great shots of natural ways the world SMILES at her… it was such fun. (if any of you know the blog let me know and I will credit her) It made me think!
When you change the way you look at things — The THINGS you look at change
I am serious as a heart attack when I say once I unbagged my groceries I looked down at this smile! I had read that keeping bananas from touching one another keeps them fresher… well they smile pretty well too!
Please stop by Beverly’s Pink Saturday and join in the fun over there too!
