Seeing Beautiful: The Florida Panhandle Edition

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” ~ Omar Khayyam

“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” ~ Andy Rooney

“You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren’t happy in one place, chances are you won’t be happy anyplace.” ~ Ernie Banks

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” ~ Mark Twain

“A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.” ~ Author Unknown

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~ Dalai Lama

"“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” ~ Andy Rooney"

I agree! It comes from the "journey."

Have a super weekend, my friend! And Happy Mother's Day to you!

X to you and the girlz

Thanks Mary! It truly is beautiful...but to be honest...I do struggle with the was so VERY humid while we were there. It usually isn't too bad when we go in April...but since we went over to the was a lot more humid than say.... Jacksonville. Lesson learned! Happy Weekend!

Jeanne Pursell said...

Ron! Thank you SO very are such a good friend! I love taking photos in Florida...the sights are so very different from NY. I literally take thousands of pictures so you will be seeing them pop up for awhile yet! I should pull my old Canon Camera out. Even though it is a Point and does have some cool features. I just use my iPhone because it is convenient! Hope all is well with you and thank you ever so much for wishing me a Happy Mother's Day! Meish and I are going to a movie to celebrate. Enjoy your weekend! Xo
