Coffee Beans, A Fence and Me

"I have learned that the point of life's walk
is not where or how far I move my feet but
but how I am moved in my heart."
Anasazi Foundation

"Never did the world make a queen of a girl
(or a carrot)
who hides in houses
 and dreams without traveling."
Roman Payne


I really owe today's Good Fences post to 
and a memory of mine they had waiting for me.
(I really enjoy reviewing what memories they've left for me)
It's like living it all over again.

It was a post I shared on FB that stood out the most today, and now I'm sharing it with you.

If it all came down to carrots, eggs and coffee beans,
and if I had a choice, I'd chose to be a coffee bean!

"Where's the coffee?" cried the thirsty Gnome while wiping his beard!

Grandma always sees thing much different-

(as well as my dear great-grandmother)

they showed me the way-
ways I still follow today)

Their biggest point was
always be thankful-

Being thankful spreads too.

"The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water."

And they were thankful to bring such flavor to life.

 Grandma always sees things much different.

Those little munchkins are counting on it!

"You must give everything to make your life
as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination."

Enjoy your life! Thanks for stopping by to make my day brighter!
