A lovely quote to add to our Sky Watch Friday party, where bloggers from all over share in the simple fun of appreciating the show nature puts on for us in the sky.
My week got even better with a lovely win from Imaginarium Designs
and sharing a link to my first post with Helmar Adhesives.

Spied a spot of colour on the horizon during my early morning commute that begged me to stop and enjoy the light show.  Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over have found in their sky to share this week.

Re-Posting (after blogger reconfigurations) my Happy Sky Watch Friday photo from along the road, where you never know what you might find around the corner. Click the link to see what bloggers from all over have found in their skies to share this week. 
Had to ponder this quote for a while. We generally value what has already been accomplished and how should we value aspirations.  Thinking all the kind teachers who have helped me learn the skills that lead to accomplishments, I decided that this week will be devoted to repaying their generosity by believing in others dreams enough to help them find their own way.
