Sometimes we are in such a hurry we fail to pay attention to all that is around us. Realizing that we never know what tomorrow brings, I want to take it all in, hold on to it and appreciate the wonder that is everywhere.
Sometimes it’s stopping on a foggy morning to appreciate the window boxes planted on an old barn. There are no houses around, and I can’t help but wonder who makes the effort.
This time of year dahlias are in full glory, and I want to acknowledge each waxy petal.
I pay special attention to the butterfly that is soon to head south, perhaps making its final journey.
I don’t want to miss the magic of a full moon shining on the water
or the fading summer beauty of a neighbor’s garden.
I salute the first red leaves on the tree outside the door knowing they are symbols of the season just around the corner.
Yes, I want to take it all in because who knows what tomorrow brings.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
