Sense and sensibilities

Einstein reflected:  “There are only two ways to live your life; one as though nothing is a miracle, the other as though everything is a miracle.” 

At dawn, our home is resplendently peaceful.  Men and beasts sleep onward at the hour I rise.  Hunkering deeply into a blanket on a back porch chair, I miraculously await the day in solitude (well, almost). In this profoundly reflective moment, I am grateful…

…for glorious leaves swishing and swirling in the crisp autumn breeze like colorful snowflakes on the yard…

…for the sparrow’s chorus at the bird feeder as the cardinal family approaches to partake in their morning ritual while geese honk to encourage one another above…

…for the aroma of freshly baked bread (bread machines are magical!) mingling with the fragrance of pine and the scent of freshly mowed lawn sprinkled in morning dew…

…for the slightest hint of chocolate in the locally roasted and freshly ground brew in my steaming cup of coffee…

…for the soft warmth of our furry “grandma kitty” who squeezes her sizeable frame next to mine in the chair for early morning snuggle time… sooo, on Day #25:

What miracles are you gratefully living in your moment today? 

Be blessed and grateful; sending blessings and gratefulness your way!
