For Use Were Made

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Oh, garden, with
your vibrant hue,
You paint my morning,
fresh and new.
A canvas splashed
with life and light,
A perfect start,
serene and bright.

All doubt, despair and fear
become insignificant once
the intention of life
becomes love.

Hide not your talents.
They for use were made.
What’s a sundial in the shade?
Benjamin Franklin

I decided that the most
subversive, revolutionary thing
I could do was to show up
for my life and not be ashamed.
Anne Lamott

If you are patient in 
one moment of anger, 
you will escape a 
hundred days of sorrow.
             Chinese Proverb

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia


The problem is not slipping up;
the problem is thinking that
if you can not do something
perfectly, then you shouldn’t
do it at all.
James Clear

Love the beautiful garden, the cute ducklings and lizard.
The shot of Pixie watching the ducks out the door is cute.
Take care, enjoy your day!

Kind of true about patience and anger, but when you reach the boiling point it is probably necessary to let off steam. 😎

Pixie can dream. Great quotes today, Cloudia. ;-)

Sandee said...

It's cold here. I want some of that warm.

Pixie is most beautiful. I love all her colors.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Cloudia. Scritches to Pixie. ♥

The Chinese Proverb is very correct.

Bill said...

Pixie is curious and very focused. Great words and photos, Cloudia.

Catalyst said...

Pixie is more than curious. Methinks she's on high alert in case her human should open this blasted door.

Martha Jane Orlando said...

I agree with Bill that all the words and photos here are stunning, Cloudia. I loved the first poem the best!
