hello there, friend,

as i write today, i'm reminded to look for and notice the beauty that surrounds me... when i stop and reflect i can see it. when i chose to breathe i notice. when i sit in silence and think about all i have to be grateful for i sigh, because in my own weakness i choose so often to ignore it...

the way the sheets were tangled around my feet when i woke, the breeze from the ceiling fan, the scent of magnolias in the alley, the way the soft rain refreshed me as i ran, the way the kids gave me space when i needed it, the way a shower and clean clothes make me feel like a new person, a newly made pot of coffee, the promise of a weekend with friends, chirping birds... and grace, always grace.
