Oh how poignant, but yet so gentle, is this message! And the blue that you capture is just soothing and magical as I love my blues...hello there dear heart! I will take this image and message with me as I prepare for conferences this week, and as I face the realities of being an Etsy shop keeper!

BISOUS, Anita

Beautiful reminder Koralee. Something to think about. I will look around (as far as I can with this mist, sorry, lame joke). There's so much to be content for if we just take the time to look, you're so right. Have a lovely day Koralee.
Bye,
Marian

Hello Koralee! Thank you for your lovely comment and your visit to my blog. You always cheer me up! :D I truly agree with your beautiful post. :D Today I had a hard emotional day and at the end of it I just had to think about all the things I'm grateful for and it made me feel better. :D Have a lovely rest of the week and thank you!

Cindy Albert said...

Greetings...love the beautiful reminder to be thankful.

Today, I am thankful for so many things. One of my favorite rituals that I'm thankful for is my daily (almost) walk at the beach. This evening I caught the sun just before it dipped into the ocean and turned the whole sky pink--incredible!

Hugs, Cindy

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!

Love that word "enough". It is sometimes a difficult one to learn, but oh so good. I went through a time when I had to remind myself of that often. It was a good lesson to learn.

by Teresa said...

That is a great idea.. I try to count my blessings a lot. I am happy with my life, except that my little granddaughters moved so far away. I'm having trouble with that. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I like this saying :)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

This year we are really trying hard to remember what we do have and not what we have lost in the past months. It is a real struggle for my husband having lost both parents this year. So, we are talking often about past holidays and things they did or said, gifts we would buy if they were here...holidays bring out all sorts of emotions, don't they?

Claudia said...

A very timely reminder, Koralee.

Hello Koralee! Lovely reminder. I know your Thanksgiving day was last month. Does your Christmas season begin right after Thanksgiving like it does in the states? Sometimes I wish we had more time between holidays. I love the Christmas season.
We just had parent/teacher conferences today. It always feels greats to have report cards done and handed out!
Hope all is well in your corner of the world!
Blessings!

A wonderful way to present a truth.
