those random moments


“There are random moments – tossing a salad, coming up the driveway to the house, ironing the seams flat on a quilt square, standing at the kitchen window and looking out at the delphiniums, hearing a burst of laughter from one of my children’s rooms – when I feel a wavelike rush of joy. This is my true religion: arbitrary moments of nearly painful happiness for a life I feel privileged to lead.”

~ Elizabeth Berg, The Art of Mending

Wishing you all many random moments of happiness this weekend!

  1. Fly, be free!
    So I realized that you are from central MA – I grew up in Northboro and love seeing photos from my old stomping ground. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    • Oh that’s so funny! Yes, I’ve lived in Northborough for almost 23 years now. Small world! Hope you enjoy this long weekend as well! Nice to “meet” you!

  2. Somehow I see you tossing her up in the air and trying to capture her mid-air. Either that or fishing line. 🙂 Great capture and love your thoughts on this post.

  3. just pure joy in this shot! really beautiful especially in combination with the quote. hope you’re having a great weekend yourself!

  4. I’ve nominated you for a few well-deserved awards. Please see my post “Gratitude – Part II” for details. Keep up the terrific work!

  5. It’s been a rather long time coming to our neck of the woods too – finally, this week, I was out in the garden, except now I’m recovering from pneumonia and can’t tackle as much as I’d like to.

    • Oh, so sorry to hear that. I know what you’re going through as I had pneumonia years ago and I remember that it was a long recovery for me. The minute I felt better, I’d get up and start doing things only to be back in bed the next day…so lesson learned – get your rest! You’ll be back out in your garden before long!

      • Yes, I need to remember not to do too much. Today I managed to do the grocery shopping all by myself 🙂
