I've decided that seen as it is a new year and I have been in a reflective mood that I will have a "Thought for the day" every day, for 2010. I thought I could share this with you, and see if I can tie up my thoughts with some of nature's :lol: and some of the sights I have been lucky enough to witness over the years.
Let's see how far I get... :roll:
Already late for the 1st of Jan, but rather late than never :lol:

Hi Everyone,

FC thank you so much for the encouragement! :dance: :dance: I will do my best not to disappoint you!

So for today 2 January 2010 I have the following:

"Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another." Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Hi All,

Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments :lol:

I have justy finished reading FC's TR, it was sooo good and it really inspired me.(For those of you who have not seen it yet, check it out A great time)
After reading about FC's patience and unfailing enthusiasm, I have decided that my thought for today is:


"What we see depends mainly on what we look for" John Lubbock
