What's Beautiful in Your Life?

It's easy sometimes to wallow in the little irritations, the messiness of life. All you have to do is turn on the radio or TV to hear about the bad things in this world...how about that horrific oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico? Or the tornadoes which recently devastated Wadena, Minnesota and other areas of the country? My thoughts and prayers are with all the people impacted by these tragedies.

Still, we need to take time to remember our blessings. Did any of you see the glorious sunrise this morning as a fresh, new day unfolded on this planet? Today truly is the first day of the rest of our lives!

How about the smile on the face of your child or grandchild? The fragrance of roses blooming in your garden? Sitting by the lake as waves crash in towards shore?

I have a friend, Mark, who created a blog on Facebook. The name is "What's Beautiful in Your Life?" It's a place to share the things that are beautiful in your life, including photos. A place to find inspiration for your life - and for your writing. Check it out.

What's beautiful in YOUR life? Think about it. Write about it. Share it with others.

Stay tuned and please stay in touch!

  1. Love your writings dear....Thank you for your blog...../

  2. So many would rather watch the tv or listen to the radio to "know" how the world is today...when really all they need to do is stop and tune out the man made things and tune in to nature...even for a small amount of time...thanks for that reminder to everyone!

  3. I like that - "tune in nature!" So true... and thanks, Louanne!
