The Beauty & Colors of Life

Friday, May 22, 2009

A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.

These quotes here really warmed my heart, when I first read them. I think they are so beautiful! Let's try to walk with joy and spread some smiles because it might add more sunshine and color to our life.
A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you're at home.

The following photos are from my family vacation to the Safari Garden Hotel & Restaurant.
Take a look at the colorful sign and bird.

The parrot is putting some fruits in the right order again.

As difficult as it gets from time to time, I really think that we should walk with more joy to notice the colors of life. See the beauty in all the simple things around us.

I will end this post with a wonderful green message: The Man Who Planted Trees from my friend Keats. I hope that you will take your time to read and apply the spirit of this eco-tale. Let's GO GREEN! Have a great weekend, everyone.

Interesting quotes. I love the one about the smile. :) I've connected your blog to mine thru Mr. Linky - who has indeed been acting up. Just as you and I are linked by our (virtual) smiles. :)

Believe me Rosidah, you are one of the Light Bringers to the blogworld.
You always encouraged friends old and new and you are an Inspiration to us. You and your SELFLESS deed.

Guess what you are going to read here.

HillbillyThe reason why I posted it here because am going to show them your link about how to insert links ... you are my only source of information. It is quick and easy to understand.

It's late now here, but few things to be done before I hit the sack. Good night Rosidah. I feel specially happy tonight.

I love the parrot photo, Rosidah! Here's an idiom for you that applies to you and me and our posts today:

Great minds think alike!

You posted about green, and so did I. :)

Oh Rosidah.......I always find beauty and inspiration here at your place. That parrot is an amazing shot my friend. The colors are so vibrant and vivid it is like he is right in front of me.
I hope you have a weekend filled with love, joy and laughter with your family beautiful lady and I'd like to submit a quote (it wouldn't let me link in today for some reason".
