{soul searching} day 23: the precious present...

"Life belongs to the living, and he who lives
must be prepared for change."
~ Johann Wolfgang van Goethe 

Feeling inspired after reading this post by Heather, over at Finding Beauty in the Ordinary
I leashed up the pups for an early afternoon walk. 
And I am so glad I did.

The weather was perfectly crispy. Each breeze loosened leaves from branches and they floated on their final descent to the street below. The trees are in full vibrancy, proudly performing their grand finale before they prepare to rest... fleeting, quiet, simple moments of peace. I wanted to make it last forever.

But today... we woke up to this:

Oh, how precious the present! 

~ I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and are able to savor the simple moments. ~

"A happy life must be, to a great extent, a quiet life.
For it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that 
true joy may live". 
~ Bertrand Russell
