Stopping for Happiness












Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, 
not because they never found it, 
but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.
            
                               William Feather


 A solitary walk in the fresh air, a pleasure to body and soul. I like to walk hard but at times like tonight, there's nothing better than stopping to savour the splendour around me before moving on, refreshed, enriched.

Your photos are so beautiful and your quote oh so true.

There is so much beauty and joy to behold in each new day.

Visiting here and reading your post was just what I needed as your kind comment on my post about my husband's passing and reading all of the comments had me sobbing. Not just from my loss, but from all of the love and support from so many.

Thank you ~ FlowerLady
