Words of Wisdom......

From Pintrest--Favorite Places

I take one good look at the picture on the right and I see a life of good works......I need to remind myself of what is important, what is necessary, what is glorious in life and live it. There is something magnificent beyond the water, behind the water wheel through the front door. What kind of life lives there and loves there? It's a magical place. 
From a wonderful blog that my daughter found for me comes some great words of wisdom......

Written by Mara Wilson, this next paragraph makes great sense to me:
"Enjoy being alive. Please. Yes, sometimes life is miserable, but misery passes, and the mere fact that you are able to experience misery and happiness and anything in-between at all is astounding. Seriously: you exist, and you are able to comprehend that you exist! How many creatures can do that?! (Hint: very few. Possibly only one on this planet at this time. That is to say one species, but if you want to get into "Shirley McClain" solipsism, you are free to pretend that yours is the only independent consciousness.) I honestly believe that life is the best thing going. Well, technically speaking, it’s the ONLY thing going, but still, appreciate it. Take some time every day to remember that YOU ARE ALIVE."

With the hustle and bustle of our "busyness", we forget we are alive for a purpose on this earth. We forget what is important and why we are alive.  I include myself in this forgetfulness. I'm guilty as well and need daily reminding.  Especially when the times get tough as they are now.  Work harder, give freely, smile more and complement often. Life Is Good!!!
