Count that day lost

a-smile-please.jpg

If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went —
Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day,
You’ve cheered no heart, by yea or nay —
If, through it all
You’ve nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face–
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost —
Then count that day as worse than lost.

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

    Hace tiempo ya que no volvía por aquí. Es que me han pasado muchas cosas, pero eso es otra historia. Muy bellas las fotos, lo que más me gusta es la definición de la imagen. Se ven muy bien los niños en esta fotografía. Estaré visitándote más seguido.

    Regards*
