The Best Things in Life Are ...

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

Daily duties and daily bread. I've got to remember that.
Your duty is to keep posting these wonderful photos ~ you know that, right?!

Wonderful picture--the snow is beautiful as it falls on the little cardinal. Robert Louis Stevenson certainly had a way with words--so true and so beautifully put. I agree with Country Girl---we all look forward to your posts each day.
