Thursday Pearls

 "There is no better time than the present
- no matter the busyness surrounding us or the grinding ordinaries of life -
to seek rest, pleasure, goodness, and beauty. 
It's always there, wherever we happen to find ourselves,
 though to find it we might need to hold our expectations 
a little more loosely and open our eyes and hearts.
If we can do that, we'll be surprised at the 
delight that can visit itself upon us."
~ Sally Clarkson

Blessings on this beautiful Thursday...

Oh, what a sweet picture you shared... and such a perfect quote to accompany, slowing down to stop and enjoy life as it happens... not waiting for the big moments, but enjoying each and every little moment. Such joy indeed! Happy Thursday hugs to you dear friend :)
