...three twenty eight.

“I carry you with me into the world, 
into the smell of rain and the words that dance between people 
& for me, it will always be this way, 
walking in the light remembering being alive together.”

i sat with Gramma Byers.
for coffee.
{walking in the light remembering being alive together}
enjoy the moments.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

...three twenty nine...

Let nothing dim the light that shines from within. 
(Maya Angelou)

she whispered...
{just BE.}
she wants her vision to soar.
she wishes for others to join her in this vision.
this journey.
to be present.
in a moment.
{just BE.}
what does that moment look like.
create that moment.
capture that moment.
be mindful.
every day.
of something.
that makes you happy...
that takes your breathe away...
that let's you...
{just BE.}
and she is asking you to join her.
she is working out the details.
would you join her?
and she whispered...
just BE.

...three thirty...

Self respect cannot be bought.
It is never for sale.
It comes to us when we are alone
in quiet moments, in quiet places,
when we suddenly realize that,
knowing the good, we have done it;
knowing the beautiful, we have served it;
knowing the truth, we have spoke it.

some days are harder.
than others.
just BE.

"Dance with the music of your soul, for only you can hear it. 
Only you can bring your light into this world.
 Sometimes you simply shine for all who cannot yet hear their music..."
Lesley McKeever 

bring your light.

...three thirty four...

I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light 
& sleep with their heads under their wings until the dusk begins to walk through the streets....

i kind of.
lost sight of taking pictures.
which is crazy.
because it love it.
a picture a day.
keeps happiness in my heart.
& fights the negativity.
enjoy the moments.
just BE.

...three thirty five.

If there is any secret to this life I live,
 this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can. 
& there is nothing more to it than that.

i cleared the deck of snow.
i enjoyed my coffee.
as i sat out there.
as i sat.
i enjoyed the moments of nothing.
the neighbors rooster crowing.
the eves dripping.
addison sitting on the deck's edge...
listening for mice beneath the snow.
the sun shining.
warming my face.
despite the temperature.
many moments of nothing for this morning.
that made for extraordinary moments.
of everything.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

...three thirty six...

in the end,
only three things matter:
how much you loved,
how gently you lived,
and how gracefully you let go
of things not meant for you.

it is the simple things.
like a fur baby.
jumping up onto the chair.
of your still life photo set up...
that makes you stop and smile.
enjoy the moments.
just BE.

...three thirty seven...

to be honest.
i'm just
winging it.
life, motherhood,
my eye liner.

when you show up authentic
you create space for others
to do the same.


~project happiness

two different inspirations.
that were back to back on my FB feed.
they kind of go hand in hand.
don't ya think?
just BE.
