~a wish for the day~

I expect to pass through the world just once. Any good, therefore, that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Dear Koralee,

A beautiful cupcake and words. I wish we could all act like this.

I still haven't used your cupcake liners yet. Hopefully next week I will have some time to do some baking :-)!

Have a lovely evening!

Lieve groet, Madelief

GardenofDaisies said...

I love this quote! My daughter kept it on her bulletin board in her room for years. And in response to your note on my post... Wow, how is it possible that you have a daughter old enough to be married and a son-in-law already ? You look so very very young to me!! :-)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Excellent thought to live by. I love the way the wrappers dress up your cupcake!

Suz said...

Koralee,
That is all so beautiful. I love the quotation. I have heard it before but not for a long, long time. They are a good reminder for us all. Your picture is lovely and that whole area of the blog, with the three pictures, looks so pretty!
Thanks always for your support with Jud's illness.
Hugs,
Suz

I can't believe how much I have missed my litlle bluebird notes this week! They always just cheer me up & inspire me but I haven't had too many chances to jump on here :) Roo is SUCH a good baby but those other little rascals have figured out already that I am a little slower AND if I am feeding Roo...oh they know they have a few extra minutes for me to catch up with them :) But I am soooo glad they are in bed & I could swing by for my note today! I really need to be reminded this week to keep thinking of others because thios week I have been pretty self absorbed :) I know every week that passes will get a little easier but I LOVED the reminder...great for me today!!!!

heather yalin said...

yes yes and yes! :) a kind and perfect reminder for any moment.

francis said...

hope you are better everyday !
what's very surprising is , I can only walk little very little and stand still for a very short time but I can ride my bike perfect.
Yesterday I visited a friend in the hospital , for the first time . It was an hour on my bike but it went well . I send so much cards and letters but a visit is something else . Since I am so much at home it was a journey and seeing the world from my bike made me a bit sad . Will I be able to join all that ever ?
I do hope so .....
Wish you a whole lot of health !
