some mondays

Some Mondays I'll do whatever it takes to brighten the day.

orange, chartreuse, blue

Like putting some mandarins in a chartreuse bowl. This morning, a few minutes after I did that the sun began to break through the clouds. Realizing that the simplest things can bring me joy makes all the difference.

"As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common, everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breathe it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm."
                                                                                                         --Laura Ingalls Wilder

Wishing you sunshine this Monday.
