                         Every Moment is a Fresh Beginning.  by T.S. Eliot

I live by these words and I preach these words to my own children.  I know life is full of trials and tribulations, ups and downs, laughter and tears but every day is a chance for a fresh beginning for all of us.
Having said that, I also see FRESH as a newness, innocence, and cleanliness to name just a few. I know these are obvious, but they still have an impact on us.
What is fresher than a clean little rugrat bathing in your tub? Along with the smiles and giggles that encompass the room. I adore the innocence and pure joy that comes from these special moments. So soon they will be gone. I want to hold onto them just a little while longer.

Or, freshly laundered sheets.  I can tell you, it's one of my favorite things. I prefer white sheets, as they make me feel so feminine and snuggled, like a warm embrace. I never  sleep better than when I shower, wash my sheets and snuggle in for the night with a good book. How about you?
 And finally, what is more beautiful, pure and fresh than the wrinkly, peeling and sweet smell of newborn baby skin. What woman doesn't long to snuggle a newborn just to get a whiff of a new baby?  I swear if we could bottle that smell it would be on every mom's bathroom vanity.  It would definitely be a staple at my house.
The definition of FRESH is not important, what is important is how a word makes you feel. Every person sees, hears, and perceives things according to their own heart and mind.  So, take the time to slow down and listen, see and feel your surroundings.
Please join us on facebook at The Creativity Project and post your pictures. We would love to see them. 
Now, take a moment to go and visit this wonderful blogger and view her interpretation of FRESH.
