Had this card through from my Papa 🙂 Been a bit tricky and he sent this as support and reassurance.
If you are your authentic self then you will be true to all you meet and shine as who you are.
Just be you.
Have a wonderful week.
Embracing the moment will be a key focus for me in 2015
Making sure I take the time to appreciate what is happening and not being so focussed on rushing to the next thing that I miss what is wonderful in the now.
I started this in 2014 and its a habit I wish to grow more.
An amazing poem called Leisure highlights this perfectly:
What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs, And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass, Where Squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see in broad daylight. Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance. And watch her feet, how they can dance!
No time to wait till her mouth can, Enrich the smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care. We have no time to stand and stare.
– W. H. Davies
Thank you so much for all your support and follows.
Wishing 2015 to be filled with love, happiness, laughter, health and amazing food for you and your love ones.
Sometimes I can be a traditional girl at heart and this is one of those times. I think nostalgia plays a part plus the whole “do I toss or do I flip dilemma”. It only adds to the fun.
Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar to the classic pancake and it is perfect.
It can have many variations on it’s fillings. Eg H loves his with nutella and sliced banana. I love mine with cashew butter, sliced banana and a drizzle of honey.
