KarenB said...

That's so true. Especially today with the news that Steve Jobs died. All that creativity and money couldn't buy him another day. But, he made the most of the ones he lived. I was pretty lazy today. I need to savor the moments.

Ann said...

Very inspiring!

And the image is so lovely.

Have a wonderful day ♥

I am painfully aware of how fast life goes by.. I'm in the last quadrant and I'm trying hard to live life to it's fullest. Thanks for reminding us.

It most certainly is not always tied up with a bow!!! But, I do need to remember that it is still a gift.
Thanks for that today.

And the older you get the faster it zooms! I find that I have to be intentional in enjoying each day. It is too easy to get caught up in the daily "to do" list and not make time for a little joy. Thanks for todays reminder:>)

Catherine said...

I wonder why those cookies look extra yummy with that bit of ribbon tied around them! mmmmm.....

Hope you are having a lovely October Koralee!

Love this today, I am using ribbons all over my place lately. They make everything look more pretty!
Have a wonderful Autumn day, Koralee, did Mr. Fall find your doorstep too? It has been oh so very windy for the last few days. Wearing my favorite cardigan and smiling all day long. Happy hugs xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Kitty M said...

Simply beautiful post Koralee - I was thinking that last night ironing Luca's little baby grows - his newborn ones are already too small.

Everybody keeps telling me how fast he would grow. It is so true and does make you remember to hold onto every moment :-) x

Beautiful, and love the picture! Have a great day!

Linda said...

Don't you wish you had realized that when you were younger? There's no way to really make young people realize just how fast life goes by.
I wonder what we'll think of this life when we're in Heaven. Will we laugh at how hard we tried to hold onto it?

Gloria said...

Hi Koralee,

Lovely photo and quote...:)

I just wanted to say, "Thank you for all of your positive encouraging words, attitude, and photos over here!!" I have been SO busy I haven't had a chance to visit here everyday. I scrolled back through your posts. It has brought a big smile to my face today! Not that I was frowning or anything you know. I just felt an uplifting of my spirit as I went back through all of the ones I missed! Beautiful!! :)

I hope you are having a sweet day dear friend!

xoxo...Gloria

GOOD EVENING KORALEE!

I made it. I made it through the day and it was actually fun. WHEW....I had remembered a very important thing last night. LOVE CONQUERS ALL. SO....this morning after the English quiz, I gave them a chance to play a game as a class and I had that one child assist me. He actually behaved, and throughout the day I told him what he was doing right. HOLY COW did that make a difference. You would think I would know this by now!!!!!!!!! Let's see how the plot thickens...in the mean time my dear, YOU ENJOY those teacher conferences and ARE YOU ENJOYING AUTUMN? Our leaves are falling, but it is STILL HOT! Oh, I never thought I would be craving cold weather!!!!

HAVE A BLAST AND CREATE TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL HEART'S CONTENT!!! Have you seen our dear Rosie? I MISS HER SO MUCH! Anita

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Thinking of this quote:

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
:o)

Please pass me two of those delicious looking butter cookies!
Oh they would go well with my tea ♥

Wishing you some quiet moments this weekend * ~ steal a few if you must!
*blessings*
Maria

francis said...

Absolutely very true .
The most amazing gift of all ....
I see all of it renewed ( is that a word ?) in my little precious Eva .
New life ..... a gift to so many people around her . She brings together two families .
Did I tell you her other grandmother is living across from my house ?
This week Eva was at her other granmothers for a day so her mother could study ....she has to start back working soon.
Eva and her grandmother came for coffee and both grandmothers were over the moon ...together .
Have a happy friday and beginning of a weekend .... Hugs for you .
