  1. Love that pic and quote Beth. It is so true. For a long while now have had an image of life as being much like a tree. Each year is the basis for the next and all that we have ever done is still inside us – not left behind. Many envision life like a timeline – moving on and away from the past. I think the past is a part of us and we build on it daily and yearly. (Which actually makes the concept of forgiveness especially important.) Like the rings of a tree.

    And, indeed, the vast number people who have become great or done great things will tell you that it was no one thing but rather a minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, year by year accumulation. Much like the answer to the joke: How do you eat an elephant? – One plateful at a time. That’s the way you eat life too – one plateful and one biteful at a time.

    Great Post Beth. thank You..

  2. You’ve got to crack a few eggs to make ‘French toast’ – and it doesn’t matter that each cook has their own recipe. Today I added cinnamon and nutmeg. …little things indeed. 🙂

    Perspective is something that is often missed when our focus is too narrow.
    Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

  3. Reminds me of that quote from Julie Garwood’s “The Secret” that said, “One whisper, added to a thousand others, becomes a roar of discontent.” Contextually speaking, they were talking about a time when women were considered by the Catholic church to be less important to God than cattle. The heroine, in tears, was telling her Scottish groom that she was a heretic because she didn’t believe that was the case… His response was to agree and to encourage her to speak out…with that quote.
