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

Fear pounds on the door to our heart demanding to be let in. Joy is modest and often comes into our lives like a shy person entering a room; it can take a while to even notice it’s there.

    1. Just when you think life can't get any more complicated, another piece of the sky comes crashing down. Still trying to get a handle on all of this and what it's all supposed to mean. Love that you are still here Cro.

  4. Your blog is beautiful, and I too am so sorry you are troubled. May you draw strength from comments like Handy Andy has written, and "Hold fast...hold fast my friend."

  5. I was taught once that the original Greek definition of pure joy was 'a calm delight'...sounds very much so like the 'shy joy' Mr. Carroll was talking about.
    Fear on the other hand...is just a bully!
