Have a Blessed Weekend

I took the above photo from the bus on our way home from Atlantic City as the sun was just beginning to set. To me, it is a symbol of the awesome beauty that surrounds us, beauty that is easy to miss in our busy lives. The Universe is a place of miracles, and these miracles happen everyday if we just take the time to catch them.

As another Friday rolls around, I am continuously amazed at how much I have been missing throughout the years. Each day I meet another friend and each day I find myself enjoying life more and more. I am appreciating all the beauty that surrounds me each day that I leave the house from the smallest insect to the vastness of the sky. Life truly is a gift, and in the words of the great lady, Mother Theresa.... 

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”


  1. Ooh . . . that's a beautiful sky my friend.

  2. What I see in that picture is an Angel with arms outstretched and one leg behind her as she floats. Her head is facing to my left and even her hairdo can be seen.
    Like yourself, I'm enthralled with "LIFE" and all the beauty that is around me.

  3. Happy weekend Mary! Isn't life grand?!

  4. Beautiful post and sky! :). And what you say is true. There's so much wonder in every day to marvel at! You have a sweet weekend too!
