No worries; this isn’t a religious post.? I’m a live and let believe kind of person.? It may be an appreciation post; a “stop and smell the roses” sort of thing.? See, at some point this saying got distorted and lost its beauty.? It was originally intended to call our attention to areas of smallness, so that greatness could be seen through our combined meticulous efforts.
I’ve had a few roses come into my life recently that have made me very appreciative of all things, large and small.? I’m making a conscious effort to flow through life rather than rush, to notice the details and to do so with a sense of wonder and openness and amazement.? I am so terribly grateful for my friends and family, who make me want to squeeze them tightly and laugh loudly and grin til it hurts.? Yes, it’s near Thanksgiving, and yes I’m a mush… but if you’re reading this, you probably already know that about me.
So breathe a little deeper and stretch a little farther.? Pet a cat, hug a friend, kiss a lover.? Glide through the journey and rediscover the beauty.
…………………………… with love and wonder, C.
