Chapter 5, Page 8, Book 15



The moments of happiness we enjoy
Take us by surprise.  It is not
that we seize them, but that the seize us.

Ashley Montagu


May 8th - love surprises

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Khalil Gibran

There is a saying that says we should seize the day!  But it is often true too that the days often seize us.  




Remember:  It is amazing how a smile and a friendly greeting put people at ease. It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile, so smile and give your face a break!

Look and you will find it - what is unsought will go undetected.

Sophocles

Every day may not be a good one but there is something good to be found in every day

Yes, true........every day is not a good one but we all learn to live with it and make the best of a bad day.

This is a good one to start our day. We will be gone for a couple days. Going down East to see a grandson graduate.
Looks like a good day to drive.
I enjoyed the read this morning.

It is so true that the day seizes us instead of us seizing it. I think that we can seize it back if we resolve to live gratefully no matter what the circumstances might be.

What a quote that is, "The moments of happiness we enjoy Take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that the seize us." I LOVE this. Ashley Montagu is a very insightful lady.
