Friday Frills



That Woman is a Success...

Who loves life and lives it to the fullest, 
Who has discovered and shared the strengths and talents that are uniquely her own. 

Who puts her best into each task, and leaves each situation better than she found it, 
Who has an appreciation of the world around her and her important place in it.

Who has the capacity to give of herself and graciously accept the kind words of others,
Who has the enthusiasm to welcome each new day with warmth and excitement,
Who seeks and finds that which is beautiful in all people... and all things.

Whose heart is full of love and warm with compassion. 
Who has found joy in living and peace within herself.

*Quote by Barbara J. Burrows, edited.



This is an ode to all you amazing ladies out there, as we celebrate National Woman's Day here today in SA. 
I will be away for the public holiday & long weekend. Chat back to you next week!

Ah, dearest Sam, now I know what I´m still not ;) But I want really to be like that woman, so I will try and try it again and again - and take every try as a practice ...

Hope you had a great weekend so far - we enjoyed every minute and my husband and myself were at a wonderful lake near us, did a long walk and ate in a nice cafe yummy cake with coffee :)
