All That's Beautiful

Like many, I lead a busy, some­what hec­tic life. I’m com­pletely aware of this and take total respon­si­bil­ity for over-scheduling, not mak­ing time to “stop and smell the roses”, miss­ing birth­days (I’m known for send­ing a card a month AFTER) and mak­ing time for friends and fam­ily. But my life is going to slow down a bit after mid-December for a few months and I’m look­ing for­ward to spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends but also, with me.

I took time today to reflect on those things I find beauty in, as when I reflect on all the beauty that sur­rounds me, a calm sur­rounds me and I know I will get.thru.this.day. For me, all that’s beautiful.…

the coo’s, smiles, and lit­tle laughs of a baby.…

the scent of rain as it falls from the sky and trav­els thru pine trees bounc­ing off the earth…

the hugs from my girl­friends — always with love and affection…

the first cup of tea in the morn­ing as I slowly awake to a new day.…

the ran­dom smile from a stranger as they pass by…

the patience, sup­port and under­stand­ing of my friends as I travel this glo­ri­ous jour­ney in life…

What and where do you find beauty in your life? I hope you know you ARE sur­rounded by beauty — just look around.
