I know I have used this quote before, maybe many times. But whenever I come across it, it speaks to me. It reminds me that every day can be beautiful. It reminds me that every day can be filled with simple pleasures and special moments if we are open to seeing and appreciating them. It is hard to always remember this with all that is going on around us. But it is possible to do so if throughout the day we stop and take a minute to look for the beauty that is in front of us. I drew the flowerboxes that are on our deck awhile ago. To me they are always beautiful whether it is a year where the flowers bloom like crazy or one like the year above when it was too hot for much to grow. As I walk through the house I always take time to look outside and appreciate the color of the flowers, the green of the leaves, or once in awhile the beautiful butterfly that stops by to visit. It's a simple thing to do but one that always gives me pleasure. Is there something that you do that reminds you just how special the day is?
