Sweet Peas

"Sometimes you don't need a goal in life,
you don't need to know the big picture.
You just need to know what you're going to do next!"
- Sophie Kinsella

Sometimes it is nice to just relax, and allow the "next step" to be something as simple as buying a bouquet of tender spring flowers, and breathing in deeply the fragrance and grace of a new season.
And then, you will probably more easily notice the arrow pointing "this way"...

(thank you, heather...)

So much truth in these words!!! My life is so full of "doing" I sometimes forget the enjoying. I find that a smal child will renew that wonder of life for me.

I too so look forward to your blog--all the beautiful pictures and the lovely--inspiring words touch my heart and my life.
Thank you and God bless you! xo Pam

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
