This Gratitude You Speak Of

A  L  O  H  A !
" If you can't be 
for what you have, 
be thankful for 
what you have escaped. ” 
                                John Wayne

These Sea Turtles Inhabit a Construction Fence

Gratitude is
a big word for 
realizing how
you are
in so many ways
right here - right now

Linking to

starts as
an idea -

But if it takes root,
gratitude becomes
the texture of
a happy life

write your own ending. 
Keep believing, 
keep pretending. "

Keep Believing
Keep Pretending
Keep Gratitude

Gratitude is a very elementary sensation. Your photos are getting more and more colourful!. Cloudia what does <3 mean? You use it all the time and I have no idea what it stands for.
Have a great week!

A wonderful observation on gratitude. And I love the sea turtles mural.

That crane is interesting. I always look forward to the burst of color on your posts, Cloudia!

Luck is in the eye of the beholder.

I agree with Reader Wil about how lovely and colourful your images are. And I had to smile about the <3. A past boyfriend's daughter used to sign off with it all the time and it perplexed me until I turned my head sideways and saw the perfect heart.

Friko said...

hm gratitude.
one of these all-things-to-all-people words.

I’m rarely grateful in isolation, should I try to be different?

Love that crane.

William Kendall said...

That is a nice way to offset a construction fence, putting images of sea turtles on it!
