A Monday Affirmation

On this Monday let's pause and take a deep breath. Now think about some good stuff - something that makes you happy happy. 

Here's a couple for me: 

The sun's shiny golden loveliness makes everything else beautiful and small at the same time:

The fleeting beauty of a lily - so fragile and temporary.

Some of the most beautiful things in life are ephemeral. I think the trick is to savor every single one of the sweet moments you have. Just jump in and bask in the GOOD. Revel in it.

Don't waste what precious time you have in anger, doubt or distrust. No good can come of it. 


  1. I love this...Happy Monday!

  2. Are these lillies in your yard???? I love lillies and I can't get any to bloom. I bought one in a pot last year and after the leaves fell off that was it. And then I bought another this year, petals have fallen off and nothing. I need lillies!!!!!

    LOVE your blog Stef!!!!

  3. Lacy - yes, those are in my yard. Yesterday we had 3 blooms and today we have a TON. Thanks for the kudos!
