TO BE BLESSED

“Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am
to be blessed.”


~Mary Oliver

Another beautiful morning
to take a walk, this time
in the other direction.

I stopped for a while,
enjoying the view, the
smell, the silence.

I am  blessed!

I am hoping each and
everyone of you has a chance
to just 'be' in the moment, to
be blessed and to feel loved.

Happy Thursday!

  1. Such a gorgeous view!!! I have been having a really nice morning so far and "in the moment" is where I am. With the kids home those moments are scattered. Happy Thursday, my friend!

  7. Looks like you are keeping up your New Year's resolution and we get the benefit of enjoying your photos! Morning really is the best time to take pics but is surely the hardest to get out and do it! Keep up the good work!
