I noticed that he was missing part of his foot but he didn’t seem to miss a beat. He flew and fluttered around like any other bird. I watched this little creature while I was reading my book for over an hour and I came away thinking he might have been the happiest little bird I’d ever seen. It reminded me of this quote:
I love starting off my family’s day with a good quote or saying.

They are little tidbits of wisdom…..”Cliff’s Notes” I want to remember to model each day around.
My daughter’s sentences she writes in school get me every time….I love her great attitude:

Here are a few favorite quotes. I’ve paired a few of them up with my morning Instagram hiking shots…..it’s beautiful here in the Southern California desert. I hope today you are as happy as can be:
