Quote of the Day: Ralph Waldo Emmerson

November 29th, 2009

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I found myself in an appreciative mood last night, so I thought this quote was perfect.

What kind of mood do you find yourself in today?

    Me? I’m impatient…but waiting on a baby can do that to you!

    Lovely quote and pictures.

    I am in a productive mood today. Just steadily moving through some tasks that needed attention.

      I’ve been working away as well. It seems like the days I wake up early I have much more energy to get more tasks done, or maybe it’s because I actually have more hours that day:)

    Happy to be home after a long trip for Thanksgiving. A good trip, but long.

    I am elated and feeling extremely blessed today, granted this is probably due to the birth of my daughter last night. :-)
