Watch The Donut, Not the Hole

Our friend Brian, who lives life watching the donut, not the hole.

During a visit today to an excellent donut shop in my neighborhood I saw a sign on their wall that brought me back to my early days of motherhood. when my daughter was little she,would fall asleep to music. My mom gave her a Burl Ives music cassette tape that contained a song call the ”Donut Song”. It turned into her and my favorite song. The chorus lyrics are ”When you walk the streets you’ll have no cares; If you walk the lines and not the squares;As you go through life make this your goal; Watch the donut, not the hole”

What does it mean? It means we should focus on what we have, not what we don’t have. Very good advice!

About Me:

Me and my sweet hubby

Life is precious, capture its beauty. I am lucky to have a loving family, and wonderful friends. Like everyone, I have good days and bad days, happy days and sad days, patient days and crabby days, beautiful days and ugly days, etc. I try to “hold the bright side up” as much as I can because it makes me feel better, and I think it helps others feel better too. I am so far from perfect, but I try to be kind and respectful. I truly believe that life is precious and that there are so many extraordinary ordinary people and moments in life. I want to share and celebrate the “extraordinary ordinary” through my writing and photography.
