On the 7th day of Happiness – The Quality of Cherishing!


“Life comes and goes, in starts and stops,
with ups and downs and all arounds.”~ Penny L Howe


And yet still it’s life – as we know and understand it to be. So what can we take from this?

We can remember to Cherish! Those special people, experiences and moments – the oh-so-happy times. Within the prisms of our heart there is a quintessential quality of memories that nourish us when we’re sad, sustain us when we’re troubled and gentle our thoughts and actions when we’re stressed.

Cherishing is an artistic absolute, lifting up a mundane or indifferent day into the realm of something much more.

Hold dear and close those cherishing thoughts. They are yours to keep and value forever. Use them well. Not only do they sustain, they also become an essence of your being, a filter to enhance and strengthen your life’s experiences!


A warm affectionate hello to my world-wide friends,

~ Penny

  1. You are absolutely right Penny. It is those cherished thoughts that carry us through the difficult times. I had many of these from you to help me through my challenging summer. I will always be so very grateful to you. 🙂

  2. AnElephantCant say he knows too much
    About the wonderful Quality of Cherishing
    But one thing he knows
    And he knows that it shows
    If he follows Penny’s words he is soon happily flourishing

  3. Showing my age here — The second I saw the word ‘Cherish’ in your title I thought of the song that was so popular back in the 1960s. That song really compliments your post here.

  4. A warm and affectionate hello back. How true what you say, life has its ups and downs but we wouldn’t want it any other way. So we do cherish those we love, the moments we share, always moving forward in search of new adventures. Good one Penny.

  5. I love the word cherish and its meaning, and it is such a good thing. It is one of the few things I could not translate in German but know and love it in English. I cherish you , Penny, and so many other people and memories and thoughts!

  6. The quality of happiness is increased with the quality of friends, not the quantity. I really like this post Penny. I like the idea of keeping hold of the most cherished thoughts to use them. Thank you.

    Hugs to you and your family.

Thank you for your thoughts!
