This is a wonderful poem of inspiration but inspiration from within and not actually doing more than enjoying the "now". We forget to do that don't we as we dash about through out days....that is a wonderful reminder.

Hi Tina,

Been thinkin about you, hope you are not in danger near the fires.

With love,



Love this post, it is so very true! By the way, I love your light! Did you put the mason jars on yourself or did you purchase it? Please tell us!



Do you know how to paint the dreams ???

or you just understand roses to be smelled by ! or do you understand ...saddest comment i ever read from you side ......infact useless and worthless


So true. We all need to slow down and enjoy the simple things that matter most.

Hi Tina,

Doing nothing, but reading and listening to the music on your blog.

Hi Tina! It makes me think of the Bible verse that says, "Be still and know I am God." LOVE your post!



Always enjoy your inspiration in all areas of life.

Find a time to sit back and relax with the beautiful chair in the picture.



It's true! We really do "find" the time for the things that we love. :)



You know what I'm absolutely the worst at? Doing nothing! Terrible, it's something I need to learn. Thanks for these reminders...you're so sweet!

Elsie.. what a treasure... every day for 30 years? Beautiful. How funny (or sad?) that we all know the exact truth of what you shared Tina. Nothing huh? I'll work on it. :-) Have a wonderful... nothing week ladies. Debbie


I think I need to frame this post! :-)

It's such a good reminder of how the simple things in life, are the best!!

Nice Tina.....REALLY NICE. I am going in the morning to drink coffee with my friend
that I have had coffee with every week for the last 30yr. Life is too short not to stop and smell the roses. Great post!!!


Tina..you are so right...taking time for the little things of life's enjoyment..priceless!


That's so wise. We've surely enjoyed a little extra time this weekend...and a homemade pecan pie. :)


Love it and so true that I (we) need to slow down and take the time to do the important things!


Love this! It is so true we just need to slow down and enjoy life. It has so much to offer us. May I share this on my blog? I'll link it back to you.



I agree. sometimes all we do is go go go, and we forget to appreciate what we have; friends, flowers, nature and to be thankful. Thanks for the reminder. Life is too short. Kathi


Why is it that is the hardest thing to do? I feel guilty doing nothing! I need to get over that.


My hubby says I do not know how to nothing! He can sit on the patio for hours just watching the birds. Twenty minutes and I have to do something else.


I love this!!


Pure truth. The hardest part is to simply do nothing. We woke this morning to pouring rain. All of us ran outside to sit on the porch, closed our eyes and listen.

What an amazing gift.

Rita May

good reminder. may I post this on my blog with a link back to you?


Love this....its a great reminder to slow down and enjoy those seemingly "little things" that often pay the biggest dividends!
