      Mama says you all got a ton of rain down your way. Glad you are where it is cool, peaceful, and dry. I think there is some saying, and of course, I have this wrong….it isn’t the breaths you take, its the moments that take your breath away. Same thing as making moments count. I remember days, but more often, I remember moments from a day that made me laugh, cry, or get angry. But I remember the moment I first saw Mt. Fuji, from a distance – I treasure that moment and the gasp of my breath when it hit me…Fuji.is.Huge

      Thank you. I love water lilies, en masse or just the one. If you ever need free, public domain images, Wiki Images is an excellent source, which is where I got that photo. there is a small lake near me that in summer, has an area completely covered by lilies. I think since I upgraded my phone, I’ll go by and get some pics of my own. thank you for the comment. I subscribe to a daily inspirations email and this one, really hit me. I hadn’t heard that quote before but am now researching the writer of it.
