{a berry of a day...}

{con't from last post}

.....giving a day a chance works.
You do the same the next day and the next.
Days become a week.
Weeks become months.
Months become years of good days.
In such a fashion good lives are built.
One good day at a time.
An hour is too short,
a year too long.
Days are the bite-size portions of life,
the God-designed segments of life management......
{Max Lucado.....Every Day Deserves a Chance}

Hi Kora Lee

"Days become a week.
Weeks become months."
reminds me of the saying - how you spend your days is how you spend your life. Good reminder.

Very wise and so true. After a long day of work, it was nice to stop and read this and really take it in. Thanks, darling, for posting this. We all need to take a big breath and be reminded of such things. Have a wonderful, enjoyable weekend.

Hi Koralee,

Oh yes, the days do sometimes seem to be speeding fast. Great to live one day at a time.
The bowl of blueberries is lovely.

*Days are the bite-size portions of life* such lovely reminder in the sweetest words, so so you. You enjoy your little trip, laughing, picking, baking, reading. Hope the weather is sweet to all of you.
I'm off to a museum today. Its a small and cute one, we'll dive into Alice in Wonderland. Curious how that will be.
Enjoy the JOY the next days, sweet Koralee xxxxx

I think everyone should read this ..!! I cannot think tooooo far ahead, otherwise it takes the enjoyment out what is around and happening now. Some people just think months ahead, something like "Cannot wait until September, going on holiday" what about all the weeks in between..

Enjoy all that you are doing, and take care.Anne xx
