{Day 53}

Somethings take a lifetime to learn.  A lifetime to process.  A lifetime to enjoy.  Yet it starts with today.  One thing I am in in the process of learning is letting go.  Open hands and an open heart.  Resting in the here and now yet looking to the future with excitement and anticipation.  It was once said by Alice Morse Earle that “The clock is running.  Make the most of today.  Time waits for no man.  Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery.  Today is a gift.  That’s why it is called the present.”  Do you see today as beautiful gift? You are alive!!! Let’s not sleep walk through life but take in each moment with eyes wide open.  Will you make the most of today?  It starts by looking for the gifts all around us and being thankful for them.  I am thankful for all the amazing readers I have.  I am thankful for all the money donated to rescue orphans.  I am thankful that we can effect the future.  We have been given this time so let’s make it count.  Will you join in changing lives today by donating??

    This is such a beautiful outfit! The little cowgirl hat is really sweet for it too.

    What a darling outfit! It’s almost my favorite so far!

    I just now, for the first time, noticed the tiny smiley face at the bottom of this webpage. It just makes me grin. =] Thanks for making me smile!

        You are welcome! 🙂 I tend to be a bit of a freak about details. Hahaha! Random little things make me extraordinarily happy. 😉

        So now every time we scroll down to bottom of the page there’s a little face that smiles and makes us smile back! 🙂

          Haha! I think that’s great! Because I love details too. 🙂 It’s the little things that make life so enjoyable.
