A friendly wave to say hello!

Out for a walk in the City a while back, I saw this little bear up in the window waving, from this gorgeous old apartment building.
It brought a smile to my face.

Joy can be found everywhere. 
We just need to take a moment and look around to see it.
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
Here is a pretty bouquet of flowers dear daughter brought over
Hope you are enjoying the weekend and wishing you a happy week ahead
