Noble Tasks


I long to accomplish a great and noble task

But it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks

As if they were great and noble

Helen Keller



A Simple Breakfast 

Exploring a Tree

Delighting when mummy slid down the slide!

 Playing at the Park

Finding a White Rabbit

Discovering a Spring Caterpillar

Making a new Home

Smelling the Stunning Blue Flowers

These pictures capture simple, small everyday life but when cherished and aloud to be explored they will blossom into new discoveries....






What small discoveries have you made today?

I love the Helen Keller quote also... and all the beautiful pictures.

I loved the look on Princess Sofia's face, as you slid down the slide! The thought of you doing that made me smile! How lovely for you both to enjoy the simple pleasures in life...

I loved this post...

Thank you for putting up that quote by Helen Keller. It's been awhile since I've read it. It's really worth remembering on a daily basis.

What a sweet post - great photographs of your day. I enjoyed walking around the garden looking at all the colours, and discovering how great autumn leaves look when they are colour copied!
