I don´t have any recipes to share with you today. Oh this doesn´t mean I am not doing anything, cinnamon roll dough is rising as I type this..I promised my little guy some rolls if he would help me clean...that was two days ago and he´s been reminding me of my promise ever since...a mamma can´t go back on her word now can she? The in-laws are coming by later today and I´ll be making "gratinert klippfisk" or in English, I believe we would say fish casserole? I´m out on a limb here, someone who still remembers English please help me....anyhoot- it will be good, with a Norwegian salted fish (cod) and potatoes, cream, onions, and cheese...it´s bound to be good! I think I´ve shared this with you before but I´ll take some photos and show you again next time I post :-)
This morning while I sit here and wait for my dough to rise and my family to rise I thought I´d share some photos and some thoughts with you. Enjoy...
Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.
Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
As I go through all kinds of feelings and experiences in my journey through life -- delight, surprise, chagrin, dismay -- I hold this question as a guiding light: "What do I really need right now to be happy?" What I come to over and over again is that only qualities as vast and deep as love, connection and kindness will really make me happy in any sort of enduring way.
Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.
However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
Love is like a butterfly, it settles upon you when you least expect it.
Friendship is when people know all about you but like you anyway.
To be nobody but yourself in a word which is working night and day to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight and never stop fighting.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumblebee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
The difference between can and cannot are only three letters. Three letters that determine your life's direction.
Positive thoughts are not enough. There have to be positive feelings and positive actions.
A smile of encouragement at the right moment may act like sunlight on a closed-up flower; it may be the turning point for a struggling life.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday my friends...
Until next time...
