Sunday Solace


Well, where did that week go?!  The weather has been rather lovely here in deepest Devon for mid-October. I've managed to get a couple of coastal walks in, and also spent a few hours each day in the garden, cutting back and mowing and strimming. On Friday I dropped daughter number 2 to the airport, as she is spending a few days in Paris with her sister, daughter number 1, so it will be good for them to spend some time together. 

 Here are a couple of photos from one of the walks I did. My friend and I were fortunate enough to still be able to eat our lunch outside, overlooking the beach. It doesn't get much better than that.



The words for Sunday Solace today can be found on a Church wall in Upwaltham, here in England. 

"I will not wish thee riches, nor the glow of greatness,
but that wherever you go, some weary heart shall gladden at your smile,
or shadowed life know sunshine for a while.
And so your path shall be a track of light, like Angels' footsteps passing through the night."

For when all is said and done, isn't that what's really important in life?

I'll leave you with these words by Mother Teresa.....

A good day to you Thisisme! Love your post, especially the Mother Teresa words. I can sometimes feel when I've brightened someone's day...usually, it's a stranger who I pass on a sidewalk or in the grocery store. Just a smile can make a huge difference, without words. I love your photos, ohhh...the sea! Hope your daughters have a wonderful visit. Take care, see you soon! Hugs! ♥
