I just have to admire Lao Tzu for his wisdom and his words that I find inspiring! More Lao Tzu quotes:
“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.”
“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
“Great acts are made up of small deeds.”
May you have a magnificent Monday! Thank you for stopping by! ^..^

God gave us dogs. He gave us the dog to show us what unconditional love is. He gave us the dog for companionship. He gave us the dog to comfort us in time of need. And, he gave us the dog to lift our spirits! Here is a video that my cousin shared with me about God giving us the dog!
I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did! And here is to the little flower that lives with us in our house and is a great source of love, joy, and comfort to us both!
The Astro flower
Thank you for visiting today, and have a wonderful day! Be well! ^..^

This week, Michelle at WordPress, has chosen the subject “Adventure” for this week’s photo challenge! Let me take you on an adventure to several places where you can find your own adventures!
Take a hike and find yourself looking at this view in Yosemite!
Half Dome and Yosemite Valley from Glacier Point
How about a white water adventure? This photo is from the American River near Coloma.
Coming up and out
Or, how about exploring an underground cavern? This is one of the rock formations at the Moaning Caverns in Calaveras County.
Feel like sailing? Take a boat ride on Lake Tahoe and venture into Emerald Bay…
Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay
How about a bit of rock climbing, or rappelling at Red Rock just outside Las Vegas?
From the trail around Calico Hills
What do you like to do for adventure? I would love to hear from you!
Have a fantastic Friday and thank you for stopping by today! Be well! ^..^

Campfire – Photo by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
Once they removed the body of Jeremy, who had been stung more than 100 times, they resumed their weekend of camping. She remembered his body swelling, the pain in his face, and his final breath. It was gruesome!
She was in charge of gathering wood and starting the campfire. With the woodpile nearby, she selected pieces of kindling, formed a teepee and got it started.
With the fire blazing, she sat back in her camping chair. Staring into the flames, she found herself mesmerized. All of a sudden, flames shot up and in them she saw Jeremy’s swollen face smiling!
