The sweetest things in life
The best things in life are nearest:
breath in your nostrils, light in
your eyes, flowers at your feet,
duties at your hand, the path of
right just before you, Do not grasp
at the stars, but do life's plain
common work as it comes, certain
that daily duties and daily bread
are the sweetest things in life.
~ Robert Lois Stevenson ~

May you all have a wonderful weekend.
The sun is shining and I can even hear birds singing.
I plan to sit in the sun this afternoon and enjoy God's wonderful gift to us all - nature.
Dinner is in the slow cooker (Lamb shanks), the house is cleaned, washing on the line and the groceries have been bought. Time to have lunch and think about some crafty activities - perhaps tackle that crocheting which I still haven't mastered.
PS or I could lie on the couch and have an afternoon sleep and imagine that I am walking on along that path, with warm sand between my toes heading towards the sea. Sun is on my back and I can smell the flowers. Dreaming of summer.
