“Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, “This is the real me,” and when you have found that attitude, follow it.” ~William James~

Celebrating Small Things: The “Family Tree”

Since today is Arbor Day and we live in Nebraska where Arbor Day began, it seems appropriate to express appreciation for our tree.  We have a tree outside our patio door, a rare luxury in an apartment.

I call it the “family tree” since it seems to attract more than a few Robins.  In case you don’t know we are Robbins.

This tree and the bird feeders on our patio bring much enjoyment to us.  The tree acts as the “waiting room” for the feeders.  Bob recently commented that the money spent on birdseed is a small price to pay for the hours of entertainment we enjoy watching the birds.

In celebration of Arbor Day, I invite you to think about a special tree in your life.

Please feel free to visit the weekly Blog Hob at  Scribblings of an Aspiring Author to see what other people are celebrating.

Dr. Jeffers passed in 2012.  She will be greatly missed.  Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and workshops based on the book are still available and  helping people around the world  say YES to life.
