Snow Cottage

Sweet house RS

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again.

 And what do we teach our children?

 We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France.

When will we also teach them what they are?

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are?

 You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you.

Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.

 You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven.

You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel.

 And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

~~Pablo Picasso~~

Just a thought to give you mid week as we join together with Susan from A Southern Daydreamer.

And REMEMBER!!!  See you on Friday~~Finding Beauty

    I like snow….used to live in Colorado [for 50 years or more] —and I gotta tell you, now that I’ve moved to the coastal waters and warmer temps…snow is pretty———only in pictures.
     
    My Wednesday post…”Alligators in the Sewer?” is published…come see if you have a bit of time today.  I’d love your visit.

    Beautiful photo Claudia, what a sweet little cottage. And the quote should be required reading for anyone having a child. Wonderful post.

    Hi Claudia
    I agree with Picasso ..every child is a marvel. We all have to work towards making the world a better place for them to grow up in.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!  Loved the snow covered cottage!

  9. Such wise words and words that should be heeded by so many of today’s parents. Sorry, but it saddens me greatly when I’m out and I see parents with their children, but their focus is on who’s on the other end of their cellphone. What do you think they are teaching their children?

    love the post the words you shared as well as the picture

    What a great quote, to bring me back into focus midweek. With my teens I don’t always stay on the positive side, because they aren’t acting the way they have been taught. Then again, I guess we all have those rebellious moments in our life 🙂
    Have a blessed week.

  12. Cheryl says:

    I marvel everyday in what I am taught by my daughter.  Butterflies come alive because she taught me to see the colors of their wings just like you and the way you’ve always had such a dear way of being my friend through thick and thin.  Thank you, Claudia for fluffing the pillows and giving us a way to cozy up and be inspired through the chilly days.  Big Love!

    The flowers are lovely, but I prefer the snow laden tree and yard.
     
    I walked in such snow today. It was blue sky sunny too. Powder snow poofed up around my feet soaking my shoes but I didn’t care. Topped off with a cascade of chickadees dee-dee’ing me all the way down the path, begging for the seeds they knew filled my pocket. Tonight I relive it. The reflection in my mirror has a winter sun burn,  the kind you get when the sun has been magnified a hundred times by the white sparkley snow.
    There is the beauty that moves me.
    Thanks for your blog
