  1. Lovely post; I particularly liked the line: “You are beautiful and once you accept and embrace that, you will find beauty everywhere.”
    I wrote about how a series of powerful photographs welcomed me into a new world of beauty in my most recent post at A Wish Come Clear (link above) – guess we were on the same wavelength this week! :)

  2. This morning I went to the library to pick up some books. I noticed in one of the rooms, there was a big group of older ladies just chatting away in their bookclub. When I came out of the library, I had a huge stack of books in my hand. This older hippie man with this big white beard was in his car watching me and was just smiling with a huge grin! It was so sweet. Then I went to the grocery and just admired all the beautiful flowers in the floral department. They smelled so fresh! I can’t wait for the day I receive flowers from someone.

    • oh yes! and I loved the post. I like how it’s like you already knew what you loved about boats and it just appeared for you to take a photo. It’s beginning to look like spring in Kentucky and today is a beautiful day outside, so this post goes great with today!

    I love standing on my porch on a beautiful clear night to marvel at God’s wonderful heavens. The other night the moon was offset by Jupiter and Venus, and they were so clear and bright I felt that I could touch them.

    I live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It’s easy to take the beautiful scenery for granted. Thank you for reminding me to look out the window and really take in the beautiful, snowy mountains!

  5. I love this! Your viewpoint, and pictures are a work of art! Today I am finding the simplicity in laundry baskets…yes laundry baskets. Ok maybe I need to look a little outside my home.

  6. I love boats too. I love how they are connected to water (ideally the ocean). I love how they can be painted such bright colors and contain so much personality. I love the pic of the cat laying on a boat in the sun. That has got to be great bliss rocking on the water in the sun.

    Part of my day that I have been enjoying is the rain. It has been rainy all day, sometimes really heavy. I love the rain. The steady soft music of it, the the look of it in the air and on the window.

  7. I love that little ‘imperfections’ can often make a simple object even more beautiful.

    Honesty!, it’s a beautiful thing

    Lovely post! All this week I am going to focus on the ” you ate beautiful” statement. I have a two month old and while my body seems like a deflated version of my former self. I want to remember that the stretch marks, saggy chest, dry hair and extra wiggle in belly are all because my body was strong and healthy to have a beautiful baby girl. It took 5 years to add this addition to our family and while I’m no longer in my 20′s I will eventually bounce back and if not that’s ok too. Because its the place that carried my girls for a long 9 months and that in itself is a beautiful thing.
    Thank you again for a wonderful post to remind me of that.

    Love, loved, loved these writings!! I am 67 years old, & live on a farm in GA. Beauty is all around us & most importantly within us – we just have to take the time to look for it & enjoy! The cat in the sun was a beautiful site & the comment about rain is so true with me. We have a screened porch with a long roof overhang, & sitting there amidst rain or even a storm is awesome. Thanks for your writings!! Mary Ann

    In Eastern NC it is already Spring and although most of my neighbors hate the “weeds” that pop up this time of year in their yards, I find them lovely. The bright yellow dandylions, and the tiny white or blue flowers on some of the “weeds” makes me smile. I’m reminded of Ralph Walso Emerson’s quote “a weed is just a plant whose virtues have not been discovered.”

  12. Today I found beauty in a person I know who has recently had something horrific happen to her, yet she has still managed to avoid feeling sorry for herself and has even managed to find humor in her situation. Inspiring!

  13. You inspired me today! So I took my camera with me on my walk so I could share some of the beauty I find around me. Click on the link above to see my pretty pictures (at least, they are to me). Thank you for sharing such inspiration. I don’t live near boats, but I’d love to.

    Simply said! I don’t have a high powered camera, but I have a few pictures landscape pictures I adore from our Boston/Cape Cod trip. I am framing them and putting them up on my walls. I am now personalizing my home with pictures of my family and getting rid of pictures that are meaningless to my heart. Pictures that are important in your life should be shared not stored. That’s my simple pleasure.

  15. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

  16. If you have hemorrhoids, add mint for the water that you drink.

    Physical mutagens are borne beyond radiations in fixed specific wavelengths as in UV rays
    or x-rays. Apart through the natural method here is the mist clinically recommended method.
    To start with WATER, drink plenty of water – this can be a pure faeces softener.
