Blue Skies

To me this is not "another blue sky" picture. Seeing the blue sky with little white clouds is a momentous event here in Wisconsin. #longawaited #muchloved #light #beauty

This is not a small deal around here.
This bright blue sky is something special.

My heart is happy.
My spirit lifts.

Thank you.

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

    Hello Donna,
    It is a good Monday when the day begins with such a lovely quote from LIW. I just received a copy of Pioneer Girl from the library. It is annotated with so many facinating facts about LIW's life. I so loved the Little House books growing up. Thank you, and enjoy the blue sky!


  2. That's a beauty of a quote.

    Not much blue sky here today but we hunted down a few small patches to briefly glory in :-)

  3. Not sure which is prettier...the blue sky or the face! Thanks for the good words, Dear Donna!

  4. Blue skies can't come soon enough around here for me. It has been cold and it snowed again last night. Just a dusting, but even that is too much. The sun is trying to come out, but it just can't seem to break through the clouds. It's good to see your smiling face! I have been having trouble getting your site to load for over a week now and then when it did load the other day, it wouldn't let me leave a comment. :(

    Have a great day everyone!

    Oh, how I love a blue sky. And the Laura Ingalls Wilder quote is so true, and so beautifully put. Thank you for encouraging me today.

  6. Very true and very boule

  7. Love the quote. The skies are the bluest blue in spring, aren't they? Big puffy heart the photo of you, too.

    Both photos are charming...made me think of Irving Berlin's song, Blue Skies.
    We like the Willie Nelson version, but lots of folks have recorded it.
    love and prayers, jep

  9. It's been a looong time since I've checked in. As always, you have a way of brightening the day, even an already beautiful blue-skied day!
    Hope all is well.

  10. What a beautiful quote.

    Love you.

  11. Love that pic of you, Donna. Beautiful.

    That color sky is one of my favorite colors. So vibrant and happy and full of pizazz!
