Today’s #dailygratitude


The Backstory:

This piece was created “en plein air”. A portrait of my oldest daughter. As a child, she wrote love notes to me, telling me how much she loves me. I am so very proud of her and all she has accomplished. In the face of adversity and challenge, she brightens my day, and loves completely.

This quote is for her, and you .... and me. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doers of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, who comes short again and again, Who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and if at worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

After all, it’s a beautiful life!
