Postcard from Down South

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. ~Audrey Hepburn

(Tranquil colors of South Florida. They have calmed me as I’ve fretted about missing the big snow Up North this week…)

    …and for beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.”

      Ahhhh yes!

    Beautiful picture…where is this?

      Hi Jody–Naples, Florida, on the Gulf. Lovely.

    Maureen, love your quotes and pictures so much–brings such peace to the soul.
    So glad you are out of the big storms for a while–the winter cold and snow, while utterly beautiful, gets weary once early Spring begins to warm the earth with its portent of things to come as it does in Feb.
    Peace and Love,

      You are right, Diane, it is peaceful and good. Wishing you the same…

    I think I am a wee bit jealous…I long to hear the ocean waves and feel sand in between my toes.

    • Maureen Abood on March 9, 2012 at 12:58 PM

      Come and feel it, Maria! Sending you sunshine…

    Maureen, are you in Naples? I’m down here visiting my sisters. Give me a call if you have time for lunch or a drink.
