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

Words on Love

V...When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways
are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
When he speaks to you believe in him,
...Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest
branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their
clinging to the earth.
...To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day
of loving:
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude,
And to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
and a song of praise upon your lips.
- Kahil Gibran

Even after all this time the sun
never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
- Hafiz

  1. I never saw this post before ~ it is so touching and tender, brings tears to my eyes. I love seeing you in your wedding photos, so happy and in love! Your two children still just sparks in the eyes. And I love that quote about the earth and the sun, I read it only once before and loved it instantly! xo's
