Be Grateful

Be grateful for the kindly friends 
that walk along your way; 
 Be grateful for the skies of blue 
that smile from day to day; 
 Be grateful for the health you own, 
the work you find to do, 
 For round about you there are men less fortunate than you. 

 Be grateful for the growing trees, 
the roses soon to bloom, 
 The tenderness of kindly hearts 
that shared your days of gloom; 
 Be grateful for the morning dew, 
the grass beneath your feet, 
The soft caresses of your babes and all their laughter sweet. 

Acquire the grateful habit, 
learn to see how blest you are, 
How much there is to gladden life, 
how little life to mar! 
And what if rain shall fall today 
and you with grief are sad; 
Be grateful that you can recall the joys that you have had.
- Edgar Guest


Dancing Under The Moon

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.
 ― Osho

Cedar Waxwing In The Berries

Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.

Sit Still And Watch Them

Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn. 
- Elizabeth Lawrence


The Heart of Autumn

"Come said the wind to the leaves one day, 
 Come o're the meadows and we will play. 
 Put on your dresses scarlet and gold, 
 For summer is gone and the days grow cold." - 
 A Children's Song of the 1880's

I think the leaves growing side by side (in the middle) look like a heart :) 


Covered Bridge in Autumn

Autumn brings the landscape to life.
~ Kerri Farley

And that is especially true on an overcast autumn day which is what we had yesterday when I captured this.  The colors of autumn seem to show up much better when it is not bright and sunny.  
This is the Covered Bridge on Mountain Lake Road in Giles County.  
I am not sure of the actual name of this bridge.
