      Hello everyone this wonderful morning:
      I received this message yesterday from Spiritually Speaking and just had to share it because, even though it is short, it contains one of the greatest quotes I have ever heard and the reason for it -- a quote we should all try to remember because it is true about many things in life, like childbirth as well as doing something of beauty when you are not quite up to par or are having any kind of problem --  "The beauty remains; the pin passes."  While this is not true of everything in life, it is true of some things.  I know without a doubt that I really and truly remembered the pain I experienced in childbirth, I might not have had but one child.  But the experience itself was so beautiful and my children have brought me so much joy in life that the pain of giving birth has long passed.
      Just something for us to contemplate on today.
      Peace, love, light and angel hugs,

      Beauty Remains; the PainPasses

      Although Henri Matisse was nearly 28 years younger than Auguste Renoir, the two great artists were dear friends and frequent companions. When Renoir was confined to his home during the last decade of his life, Matisse visited him daily. Renoir, almost paralyzed by arthritis, continued to paint in spite of his infirmities. One day as Matisse watched the elder painter working in his studio, fighting torturous pain with each brush stroke, he blurted out: "Auguste, why do you continue to paint when you are in such agony?"

      Renoir answered simply: "The beauty remains; the pain passes." And so, almost to his dying day, Renoir put paint to canvas. One of his most famous paintings, The Bathers, was completed just two years before his passing, 14 years after he was stricken by this disabling disease.
