Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

V. Day 2 of moving.
..it's been a day of boxes and packing paper and saying hello to all my things that have been packed for over a year. Reuniting with little treasures and books that I have loved, then finding the perfect spot for them. Being surprised when my son turns up to tend to the garden, watching him work away, pruning and raking...he's become quite the gardener...and it's so good to see his hands touch the earth and connect with nature...and more wonderful as we stand together looking at the transformation...nothing is said...we just stand there nodding our heads and smiling, inhaling the freshly cut grass and deep rich scent of the newly turned soil. Today was a very good day...for both of us.

  1. I can't wait to be at the stage you're at - my little treasures have been packed for over two years and they remind me of people & places near & dear to me. And your description of your son gardening almost had me smelling the freshly-turned earth!

  2. Hello Lili nice to meet you...
    ...we know that moving is stressful but it's only when we slow down and take time to see the moments in it that are so precious...these can be so easily missed in all the chaos.
    I wish you moments of pure joy in your heart when it's time for you to unpack!
    Victoria
