Magpie Tales #62 and Food for thought

Magpie Tales

Learning a New Diet
(Might as well embrace it)
Nutritious, satisfying
Two Eggs,
Cholesterol, meat, per diabetic list
Too much 

Before a dx. of DM just a few months ago
I delighted in my two eggs for breakfast.
I didn't know eggs were considered meat.
They knew.


Hooking up with Magpie Tales

One of my friends and fellow art students has her own business.


A printing company

Each week she publishes a small newsletter and distributes it to all the places of business in our town and to her friends.

Her ads for the different businesses are entertaining as well as informative.

This was one of the articles this week.

John Lennon once said , "Life is what happens when we're busy making other plans." The only moment we have is the moment that is right now. And, yet the distracted, regretting something that happened yesterday, or already thinking about tomorrow. When a friend is faced with a difficult challenge such as disease or other personal problem, we all realized how lucky we are to be blessed with our own perfectly ordinary day, the kind of day they would have given anything to have back again.
When we pause long enough to be grateful for what is, we realize that every ordinary day is a gift, and suddenly , instead of taking our lives for granted, we begin to appreciate the beauty of everyday things. 
I hope you have an ordinary day today...

Nothing has clarified this philosophy for me more than my participation in the different memes and challenges in the blogging world.
With my trusty camera by my side, every time I leave my driveway I am on the lookout for something to appreciate, maybe even to photograph.

Even if I don't need a photo for a particular meme, I have gotten in the habit of noticing everything.

The different colors of the grass and crops on the many farms on my ride to different places.
I promise if you meet me on the road, I am very careful to pull over and stop before taking a shot.

How has blogging changed your world or has it changed it at all?
For good or for bad?

Blogging has certainly become a large part of my life. I tend to think of blogging as writing my memoirs. I plan to print some in a book or three and trust that the book(s) will have a long life after mine.

Distinctive, effective take on the prompt.

Those diet adjustments can be a bit toilsome... good luck with a smooth transition.

Wise friend for sharing the wisdom of taking time to notice even the smallest gift bestowed us each and every day.
