Today

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could,
Tomorrow is a new day;
Begin it well and serenely and
With too high a spirit to be
Encumbered with your nonsense

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Yesterday was a hard day. My former husband who is battling cancer had a very sick day from treatment.

These were such lovely words to see today.

Thank you One Woman!

Shannon, Tabor - thank you so much for visiting the woods on this "cold day"
WM - I am so sorry and remember you and yours daily with special thoughts..

I love the image of "beginning it well and serenely". And for some reason the thought of letting go of encumbering nonsense makes me smile.

These words always bring a smile to my face. Then I chuckle at myself for how soon I forget the wisdom they hold.
