Follow the grain, contents and rear view

- This quote by Dr. Howard Thurman that I think means to be your own person, not what others expect you to be. The best thing: learning about someone I didn't know about before via Wikipedia.

- Friend Mary's 2 3/4 year-old Bella sporting a little silver purse with purple flowers. And showing me the contents: Cheerios.

- Wispy blue clouds against the sunrise pink sky, looking like marble in the rear view mirror. A beautiful start to an unseasonably cool morning.

I love learning new things. Great quote - we definitely pay the price when we go against the grain.

What perfect contents for a silver purse with purple flowers!

There is something awe-inspiring about sunrises. It's chilly here this morning - I had to wear a jacket when I took the dogs for their morning stroll. But the sun is shining, the sky is blue and that's become a rarity this summer for us!

I've always been so different than the rest of my family that the quote spoke to me as to just be who you are.

She looked so cute - all sorts of purple accents down to the barette in her hair.

I sort of wanted to stop and take a picture of the sunrise, but decided it wasn't a good idea since it would have on the side of the expressway. :) Love cool mornings like this.

I agree with that wonderful qoute, thankyou for bringing it n the author to my attention.
I can just picture that cute little girl openning her purse for you!
I watch sunrise out the window most days thru the trees before I go to bed. Pretty ones are rare, you are blessed indeed. We also are getting some cooler temp tonight finally- we've been roasting!

Snaggle -

I used to work night shift - 3 to 11pm for years and for a while - 11pm to 7am. So it is good that you get to see the sunset most mornings. I used to find it difficult to sleep during the day - had to turn the phone off and mask the windows so the light wouldn't come in.

Cheerios in a purse - how sweet! I've got some in mine too. Honey Nut ones, of course.

Jannie -

Having Cheerios handy to munch - a good thing!
