Walking on Water

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people, and the affection of children. To earn the appreciation of honest critics, and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know that even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"To know that even one life has breathed easier because you lived".
I always find this sentence so calming. It simplifies and prioritises what's important in life.And it's just doing simple things, it's not some world-changing event.
Thanks, Kerri, for the reminder.
And thanks for another lovely photo.

I like this action shot, Kerri. I hope to practice taking a few shots like that once the ice melts here. LO But I think it will take me a while to take one as good as this...if ever. ;-)

Enjoyed the picture and the quote. The quote stuck with me and inspired a post on Sunday. I couldn't find where I the quote til I landed back here later in the day and recognized the layout... looked back a few posts... and Eureka! (I linked up my post to yours.) Thanks for providing me with food for thought. ;-)
