Our World!

Happiness is not having what you want. It is wanting what you have. – Unknown

Another Monday!! Time to share our worlds with one another!!  We’ve had a wild weather weekend here in Portland – pouring rain for 24 hours, then lots of wind, then blue skies again!! Amazing! But everything is blooming and there are colorful flowers and trees everywhere!!  Here are a few scenes!! Hope you enjoy! Have a great week!

Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.--Helen Keller

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. --Thich Nhat Hanh

I've had unexpected company so forgive me for being late to comment on your post for the day!!

Thank you for posting that quote. I really, really needed to hear that today. I really want to hang it somewhere that I can see it everyday. But for now, I am going to text it to myself so I don't lose track of it. :) Have a wonderful day!!

such beauty all around you! I don't understand how you, so much further north than Indiana, have so many blooms. Here's hoping our warmer temperatures produce such loveliness around here soon.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
