The blessing of the ordinary


How is it that ordinary life is so full of everyday miracles?

In one twenty minute walk I walk right past so much.
It's ordinary life. Or is it?


Colors, autumn breezes...


...delicious things to gather and eat,
delightful things to ponder...


... the amazing variety of life on planet Earth...


... the drama of light and dark.

If you stop to admire the fleeting beauty of an everyday sunset, it takes your breath away.


Thanksgiving is such a wonderful opportunity to stop, to reflect,
to breathe deeply and say those two little words:

Thank you.

Wonderful as always. I grew up with Filberts and don't call them Hazel nuts. I love them. Wish I could come gather some with you and crack them open and enjoy. Ahhh.
