Loving and letting go may not seem to go hand in hand – and yet..
“Love is sometimes shown in the things you don’t say, don’t keep track of and don’t notice. The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go. None of us is perfect, but we can all be perfect friends and perfect partners by allowing those that we love to be imperfect. Give those around you the “break” that you hope the world will give you on your own “bad day” and you’ll never, ever regret it.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch

Thanks for sharing this Mimi ~ I think it was meant for me to read today. xo
Good to read every day…xoxo
Yes! Tears – thanks Mimixxx
You amaze and inspire me, Mimi.
I can honestly say from my heart that those feelings are mutual Jules.
Although I am a bit skeptical of Walsh–I love these words and they go a long way in changing my mind about him–thanks for reblogging Mimi
Happy Thanksgiving LouAnn..
Happy Thanksgiving to you Mimi–I already had mine in October though–but I still get to enjoy your parades!
Oh right!! I’m so sorry I forgot. And I love the parades – I keep them on while I’m cooking!
that is the best way to cook–we have no parades in October–just geese flying overhead
Well the geese make a racket – one could pretend they’re in a band? 😉
I love that you try to find the positive in everything–I live near Jack Miners where they migrate–so yes they make a racket!
I can’t even imagine…the gaggle we have around here typically spend an inordinate amount of time gossiping (probably about each other). And yeah, I do try and find the better side of most situations – though sometimes it’s a challenge…
but a challenge you are usually up to…….
But for the days…
so true mimi
The perfect post for this time of year. It has provided much needed motivation to get up from this chair and get cookin’. Wishing you and yours the same that I wish for myself and mine. All there is. Always. Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving sweetie … deep breaths and laughter – I wish you both and love..always love..xox
Kleenex at hand. Back at ya – all the way to the moon and back ❤
It’s the best trajectory there is..xox
This resonated with me as well, honey. Sometimes an averted gaze can be the kindest of all….xoxox, L
It’s true…xox, m

To you too Vicki – thank you!
Great post Mimi, thank you for sharing it. How is the newest little man of the family?
He’s as awesome as he is mischievous Tina – which basically means he’s wonderful and the apple of his dad’s eye…
This is really a great photograph and quotation, too!
I thought so too!
