Sunday Thought

"Anyone can love a rose,
but it takes a lot
to love a leaf.
It's ordinary to love
the beautiful,
but it's beautiful to love
the ordinary."
~Author Unknown
Have a splendid Sunday.

That is for SURE. I am going to look for some "leaves" now in my life...perhaps at school, in the most unlikely places. This is what living is about.

HUGS TO YOU, my sweet and wonderful friend! Anita

Susie said...

An excellent quote, Sheri, and today I am very much relaxed and enjoying the ordinary. The red rose looks so pretty contrasted with the green and white. Is that a honeysuckle vine?
Have a nice week my friend. xx

Is this jasmine?!
Love the scent... and always reminds me of Greek summer!!!!

Have a lovely start of the week dear :)

Teresa said...

To love "just" the idea, the still promise is more difficult. And still more important because it shows the faith and hope of what may lay ahead.
Wishing you a wonderful week full of promises and good wishes,

Happy Monday! Good words. Is that Jasmine with the rose? I have to see if Jasmine will survive in Maine, I don't know how I did this winter.
