Sharing the fun and creativity in my world and encouraging the same in yours.

Christmas is about the joy of giving and I enjoy giving all year round: a compliment to the harried cashier; a smile to an exhausted mom; opening the door for the elderly (or anyone); checking in on new moms to offer assistance or simply an adult conversation; buying gift wrapping paper from neighborhood children; giving clothes no longer worn to neighbors.

No matter how big or small your effort is, it truly is the effort that counts. The effort of thinking of another person’s happiness and needs and wondering how you can brighten their day, then following through.

Blogging is a great way to spread some joy in the world! You learn how to appreciate life’s simplest pleasures and share them. 🙂 I discovered these tiny flowers during my walk the other day. Enjoy!

Take a look around you and discover what beauty or kindness you can share with your neighbors, your friends, your families, or even the stranger next to you in line at the post office. Then come back here and share them with me! 🙂

  1. From the weeds grow some of the most vividly colored little flowers. Look for that little flower in the eyes of a total stranger and tell them about it!! Very pretty Lisa!

    • Hi Celia! Didn’t see your comment until just now. Yes, that’s so true. You find the most wonderful treasures if you only take the time to look around you. 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
