“What does reward mean to you?”

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge

 “The end is not the reward;

the path you take,

the emotions that course through you as you grasp life

– that is the reward.”

.
Jamie Magee

Reward comes in the enjoyment of the fruits of one’s efforts.

We each tend to those things which matter in our daily lives.  We give our attention, our energy, to those things, and those people, we value.

I take great pleasure in these flowers.  Coming to this spot, this window, brings such a joyful reward for the small efforts of daily tending.

The tiny luxuries and pleasures of life, like winter flowers and freshly baked bread, are reward enough for our daily efforts.

Sharing them with loved ones makes them even more special.

“All those who love Nature

she loves in return, and will richly reward,

not perhaps with the good things, as they are commonly called,

but with the best things of this world-

not with money and titles, horses and carriages,

but with bright and happy thoughts,

contentment and peace of mind.”

  2. Wonderful to see your rewards both inside and outside. ❤ lovely photos, WG

  3. Oh, I love that cyclamen! I’ve not tried growing one yet and need to change that.

  4. Gorgeous orchids and definitely a wonderful reward 🙂

  5. Your orchid and cyclamen are so beautiful! I love the soft colors. Is it a phalaenopsis cross hybrid? Possibly with dendrobium or cymbidium?
