Quotes and Quests

(Children's rose)

(Charlotte Rose)

(Peace Rose)
"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."~ Abraham Lincoln

I signed up to the Brave Girls Club daily truth emails.Here is their blog. It is such an inspiring place to visit ; a quest for happiness for all women.

I honestly feel my spirits soar when the daily little bird emails deliver their message of hope and encouragement. It's not a bible scripture , though I have nothing against them either.

It feels like it is from someone who understands your situation completely.
Here is the latest ...

Dear Lovely Girl,

Look around at what exists in your life right now, beautiful friend. Look at the events that had to be orchestrated to get you to exactly where you are, doing exactly what you are doing, with exactly who you are with, learning exactly what you are learning and experiencing exactly what you are experiencing.

Look at all of this and know that it was meant just for you. If it feels like you are in a place that you would rather not be at this time, just know that you are in the middle....on the way from here to there....and that you will get through it...that it will last exactly as long as it's supposed to last and teach you exactly what you are meant to learn. And later, you will see how this time was one of your very greatest teachers.

If you are in a place that feels miraculous and wonderful...full of beauty and sure to marvel in it. Breathe it in, know that everything brought you to now...and that there's always a reason that will take your breath away.

Everything matters. Every decision matters, every experience matters, every relationship matters, every interaction matters, every lesson matters. Each piece creates a whole that is the life you are living in this moment.

What a miracle.

Have a beautiful weekend.
xoxo - Brave Girls Club.
I also love We heart life blog community and their quest for happiness . It is quite different, though along the same theme of all things positive, beautiful and quirky with 21 topics to share information on just about everything.

In all the negative spin of our daily life , these moments of wonderful remind me be always stay positive and look around for the happiness.

...Then deep gratitude seeps in and I know what a good deal I have just to be alive and I breathe a little easier... at least for a while.

There is always a silver lining, just some days it takes a little longer to find the sucker ;)

Love the rose photos!
It's been a fab season for them :)

The rose pictures are wonderful. Especially since it's almost freezing here.

I'm all for this idea. Live in the now, dream of the future yet enjoy today the most.

Such a wonderful way to look at the world, we certainly appreciate that we have been extremely lucky in life, with a wonderful marriage & 4 healthy children, plus my husband coming home from war after war in one piece, mind in tack also. Too easy to complain, i just can't surround myself with negative people, love Posie

We have the Peace Rose as well, and I just love it. There's nothing better than a little dose of happiness and enthusiasm when you need it most is there. Thanks for reminding us to keep the small, beautiful things in mind.
