Saturday Stroll

Today I took my first walk in nearly two weeks.  I can’t believe I just wrote that.  Holy Moly.  It’s been a rough round.

That said, I TOOK A WALK (Silver Lining!)…and am so grateful for it!

Because I was so winded, I was passed by three snails in search of lunch. However, this pace gave me the incredible gift of seeing, really noticing the beauty that was the bounty of spring’s flowers.

Where flowers bloom so does hope.

– Lady Bird Johnson

Earth laughs in flowers.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair.

~Susan Polis Shutz

…as soon as I HAVE hair!

If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.

~Terri Guillemets

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

– Abraham Lincoln

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends.

– Kozuko Okakura

Another Silver Lining of the day (for me, anyway!):  my next article has been published on The Huffington Post!

Wishing you all a beautiful, Silver-Lined Day!
