My World This Week...

I was feeling somewhat lost about a week or so ago, even pondered if I should stop blogging because life is coming @ me so fast and furious. I remember in the beginning days of my blogging how I'd blog sometimes two (even three) posts A DAY!!!

Where has my life gone!?!
Now I'm lucky to catch-up or post here very randomly.
Still, my phone loads up with pictures that I wish to share and which are quickly shared on Instagram.
My journal loads up with quotes and thoughts and sayings and menus and recipes and sharings.

I have it all. It's the sharing time I lack.
Then the other day my youngest showed me how to load the Blogger app on my iphone and how to easily load pictures to that app, the task which had always aluded and eluded me.
I was grateful...I AM grateful...for this quick tutorial by my 10-yr-old.

I have also worried off and on regarding the aimless contribution I am doing in clicks and tweets just to get people to take a peek at my world.
Is it worth it? Is it necessary? Is it worthy of my time and the time of others?

“Before you speak ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, it is true, does it improve upon the silence?”
― Shirdi Sai Baba

"Does it improve upon the silence?"

Oh, goodness, how I love that message.
And so I have plans to restructure because I do want to share, I do want to give, I do want to have voice in a world where I have none.

Yet does it improve upon the silence?

As I was considering this and as my 15 yr old was telling me the unbelieveable amount of photos I had stored on my iphone and which I needed to dump, a revelation literally dropped from the cyber cloud above or, more realistically, from this blog Coffee Tea Books and Me .

Each week she shares photos from her world.
This creates a sharing and a meaningful giving.
It holds beauty and it balances blessings and time.

And, most of all, it improves upon the silence...

This is my first enlightening. My first world of blessings this week.
Not a whole lot of words but lots of sharings.
Meaningful messages.
Something that improves upon the silence.
I hope you all enjoy it.
I have other little "works of art" that I plan to share but these little art tiles will change with the pictures of my world this week.
