Reblog: Hope

I can think of no one who inspires me more to embrace life, to find joy when I’m at my lowest, to know that when I can’t change the circumstance, I can still change my perspective. Through her example, she has taught me that even though I’ve gone through some rough times, I’ve gained more than I lost, and I wouldn’t change a thing. Read her post and see why she inspires so and notice how in both of her photos, she is absolutely gorgeous.

Perfect pick me up

Just sharing a friend’s pick-me-up that was also a pick-me-up for me 🙂 The scarf in the photo was one that I had sent to Belinda a couple of weeks ago and yesterday I was on pins and needles (pun intended) as to whether it had arrived (taking a slow plane from Florida to Canada, of course). Soon after I asked her about the scarf, it arrived (such are my mental powers). But not only the scarf which I knitted for her, hoping it would bring a bit of Spring to her long Winter. Belinda also received a bundle of other gifts and she put together this wonderful photo, using her scarf as a frame. Belinda gave me a perfect and happy end to a long, frustrating day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Belinda!

For Belinda: Scenes From a Walk

For Belinda at www.busymindthinking.com.  Some time ago she asked her followers to post pictures of where they live.  Yesterday I finally remembered to take my phone with me when I took a break from work and went for a walk.  The following photos are from part of a “Nature Trail” that runs through the development next to my office complex.  While I frequently (well, every work day) bemoan my commute from the suburbs across town to the city limits, I am grateful for this walking trail that allows me to truly escape my office environment and clear my head.  The trail is mostly concrete pavement but it circles around a few man-made ponds and through some impressive oak trees.  I’ve seen red-shouldered hawks, white egrets, fox squirrels, dragonflies (in abundance this time of year), and turtles.  The last photo is my last stretch of sidewalk before arriving back at my office which is at the end of that street.  Belinda, I hope you enjoy the photos.  Big virtual hug coming your way 🙂

Thinking of Belinda

I saw this rainbow today and thought of Belinda … For http://www.busymindthinking.com.

Now that I think of it … Here’s another photo she might enjoy: the evening sky from a nearby parking lot.
