Keep Going


 It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. – Confucius

Good morning!  Happy beginning of the week!  I just want you to know that I am here for you.  I am your biggest fan!  You can do anything you want ~ take baby steps ~ but don’t stop!  Just keep going!  Your ‘to do’ list of goals is ready to be crossed off, one action at a time!  Let’s begin, on your mark, get set, go!

Shine On!


Can you see it?


  Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see. –Confucius

This is an old tree in Savannah, Georgia, draped with Spanish moss.  To many, it might not be pretty, but to me, it is exquisite.  I guess that’s just the way I see things ~ do you see things that way too?  Do you delight in the mundane ~ finding beauty in what most people would consider ordinary?  I feel that it’s a gift I’ve been given to see the world in this way and I am blessed to find many companions through blogging who feel the same way.  Sometimes I feel as if we are expanding our circle of connections exponentially daily which delights me.  The simple words, “I understand” bring great comfort and connection.  Just like when we can ‘see’ the beauty in each other and all around us.

Thank you for allowing me to touch your Saturday with my blog.  I truly hope you feel the loving embrace of the Universe surrounding you in all that you do today and always.  May you find peace within and about you.  May you err on the side of kindness and may your smile brighten many lives today and always.  You are truly a gift.  I can see your beauty.  Can you?

Shine On!
