Monday Gratitude

“Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and contentment, and 100 virtues which the idle never know.”

Charles Kingsley

(Wordless) Wednesday

This is actually not a filter on the last shot. The sun hit just right for this beautiful color. These are so pretty to me…not sure why, but they sway gently in the wind and capture my attention. I was simply thankful the sun finally appeared after too many days of gray. We are half way through January and although it’s been plenty cold in the teens and 20’s, still no real snow.

I took this on December 2nd when normally, the ground and water would be covered in snow. Even now in January, the northeast continues to have a very mild winter…hoping to get a pretty snow to photograph sometime soon!
