Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!  And, yes, it's still raining -- HOWEVER! It's supposed to be sunny most of next week! Of course, I'll believe it when I see it! I hope you've all had a great week and that you're ready for a wonderful weekend!!
Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.

Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Hi Sylvia ... it sounds like you are ready to move! Yay, I know that you will love your new place. Your photos are breathtaking! How did you get your link inside of your picture? It looks really nice how you signed your name and put the link on it too.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

Hey Sylvia...my fave is that large shell. Gorgeous light. I like too your new header-noticing the cat crawling up up up at your feet. Reminds me of mine. Have a great weekend and sending you thoughts of sunshine.
