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. Hand in hand we go J. and I...as we have done for as long as I can remember...and on these pages we speak softly of things that fill our hearts and lives...we are just two who want to show the sacredness in all things...from the rituals of morning coffee served in the very best of what we own...to the meals we prepare honouring the people who work hard to nourish us by growing as J. says 'the purest form'. So, hand in hand we go, come with us, we will not rush through each day, we will honour our time here...

So for Earth Day this will be my pledge...

To remember each day to be humble, knowing that I am a visitor here on this earth,
and to be respectful of my host.
To not take for granted the songs of birds, nor the ocean waves.
To not turn away and ignore that which is less than beautiful, for it is in those places where we develop our depth of understanding.
To know that each day my life is an expression of the Divine.
And to be responsible for my choices, my words and my actions.
To live and act, in everything I do, as will bring out the
very best in others.
To remember the act of love that my big sister J. taught me,
of holding another's hand,
and walking side by side...together,
knowing that we can make a difference on this Earth for the better of all.
