Recently Lynne Hackles wrote a blog post about Three Beautiful Things.
Lynne challenged us to write about three beautiful things once in a while.
Since reading the post, I’ve been looking for – and finding – beautiful things every day. I know they are things that would have been there anyway, but I am taking time to stop and appreciate the beauty in everyday life. It’s so easy to get bogged down in the not so beautiful.
So here are three beautiful things from me for today.
Tea! Sitting in bed this morning being lazy with a cuppa and a slice of toast with grapefruit marmalade and Dusty cuddled up next to me. Such a treat.
The rain. It’s that gentle summer rain that tickles the skin and makes everywhere look lush and green.
Fruit! I made a fruit salad this morning with strawberries, grapes, kiwi, melon and blueberries. It looked so pretty and tasted so nice with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Watching my little people tuck in was a joy.
Thank you for the suggestion, Lynne. Sometimes good things get shaded out, but it’s good to notice them – and know you’ve noticed them.
And here’s a gratuitous photo of Dusty – being free to go where he chooses, but choosing to be in here with me.
