~ Pondering ~


Like the little ant making his way around the peony bloom, each of us are met with challenges each day, how we handle those are entirely up to us. I prefer to be like the little ant, eventually I end up on top and....like the peony that fully opens to display it's beauty my heart is open to new experiences and adventures.
Whatever challenges come your way today, I hope your heart opens like the peony, welcome it with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Peonies are so beautiful. They are one of my favorite flowers and with all the bushes I have I only had two blooms this year....so sad! Hopefully, next year will be better!
A beautiful and positive post!
Thank You and HPS!

That is no dumb ant. It knows a great bloom and scent when it finds one. Nicely done.

What a beautiful dog you have!
I always wanted a Collie or a little Sheltie..never got one. My tiny Pom is as close as I came..Oh well.

From one ant to another... GOOD for you!
