I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
e. e. cummings

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
John Ruskin

Earth laughs in flowers.

The bluebird carries the sky on his back.

Don, you outdid yourself today. There is not one quote I can't wholeheartedly agree with. Thank you for a good start of the weekend.

I hope your TV station shows some pictures of the Cherry Blossoms in Wash., D.C. They're at the peak of their bloom and the parade is today. And it looks as if the weather will cooperate; at 8:38 a.m., the temp is already 52 degrees, the sky is clear and blue, and the sunshine is very welcome. All of the tourists who have come to D.C. for this festival should be happy, today.

Don, the quotes are heart-warming and should remind all of us to look around and appreciate the natural beauty which God gives us; thank you for them.

Inspirational quotes for today and to remember. I know I am fortunate to live close to Nature. Asked if it is hard makes me laugh, of course, it isn't easy sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
