Petals for Today

Give yourself a gift today.

It doesn't need to be expensive.

It doesn't need to cost anything at all.

Breath deep.


Give yourself a hug.

You are doing the best you can do.

Be proud of yourself.

And leave the rest to Heaven.

Yes - Miss Mo! A lovely treat to begin my blog reading with today. I was meditating on this very truth this morning in light of my recent LACE Wednesday post on the merits of "simplify" - my summer of simplify. I can feel the silky soft of your rose petals against my cheek - and love what you did with the book spine! Now, tell me about the treat - is that some sort of chocolate moon pie?
Keeping things simple and creative today.

That is so true! I think it is so easy to focus on what we do wrong-our negative traits. It is good to get pointed in a positive direction! Hugs- Diana

Thank you for reminding me to "leave the rest to heaven". There are times when I actually forget that I am never alone. Such an inspiring post!

Your words beautify this place as much as your lovely pictorials. I'm loving this place now more than ever. What a special addition to the creative verve you've already used to such good effect here.

I visited your blog today. I absolutely loved everything about it. I just don't know where to start! First off, what caught my eye was the red rose on your profile page. I really liked the saying "A girl should be two things...classy and fabulous." The old pictures on the side bar are exquisite. The blue rosary beads are so special, and the picture of Mary with the pink roses brought a tear to my eye....I adore Mary. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would be honored. I would so very much enjoy coming back to visit you, and looking at all your beautiful ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
