One Day At A Time


"One day at a time - this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."


~Ida Scott Taylor~

Sometimes I forget about this and get caught up in the day to day.
Remember to live in the moment.

Don't forget to visit everyone at Paint Party Friday!

I hope everyone has at least one moment of joy and happiness this week and everyday.
It is there!
Look for it!
You will see it!

I love the way this beauty looks peering out from the flowers :) They remind me of clock gears (which seems very appropriate with the quote). It is always so fun to get a great big dose of inspiration from your blog!

Ah your painting is so beautiful - I love all those swirls of blue that float around her face. At the moment in my garden I have the most beautiful fragrant - yesterday, today, tomorrow flowering with its delicate purple, blue and white flowers. My daughter asked why it is called that and I said because it is a reminder that yesterday has gone, tomorrow is only a dream and today is all we have - I think this poem describe my beautiful tree very well.

LOL...just read your profile and had to laugh. You said you weren't a writer so to forgive your grammatical errors, etc... I am a writer and people have to forgive mine? What's the difference...I think you are a writer...LOL! I like to write how I speak, which isn't always proper and I do proofread and change things but some things I just like them put how I talk so I won't change them even if incorrect!

Love your blog...don't change it!
