  1. A good message that everyone needs to take to heart :) have a beautiful Saturday my friend.

  2. For some of those little turtles, life doesn't last a day.

  3. So true! Thanks for this reminder of the importance of slowing down and enjoying life.

    Have a lovely weekend. ☺

  4. Excellent message and one I wish more would listen too. So many people rushing here, rushing there, always looking dour, like they don't even enjoy life.

    We're heading to the beach today! Hope you have a great day.

  5. I agree. I am going to enjoy this weekend like I enjoy every day of my life.

    Have a fabulous weekend honey. Big hugs. ☺

  6. We've never been at the beach to see the turtles hatching, although we've seen them offshore and seen the signs of nests. They don't hurry to do anything, and it's a good lesson.

    Turtle watching sounds a lovely way to spend your time. Enjoy :)

  8. Beautiful reminder of what is important in life! All this rushing around, what do we really gain from it but weariness?!

  9. I good lesson to take to heart. I always get a lump in my throat when I see pictures of baby turtles racing for the waves because their odds of survival are so slim. Yet enough manage to survive for the species to survive. And that's enough reason for hope.

  10. A cute picture and inspiring words. Enjoy your weekend.

  11. Such important words in today's hustle and bustle world. Thank you!

  12. A very good post indeed. One of my readers from french canada told me friday that while we were celebrated spring with music, they had a slow date in Quebec. I enjoy this coincidence.

    Happy (late) SWS
