Another week has flown by. My contribution to Paint Party Friday is a picture that I took a month ago. I was at the park with my husband. The park was filled with people laughing and having fun. I had my camera and decided to take some pictures. As I stood quietly by the lake, I looked to my right and there stood a duck looking back at me. He was enjoying the view just as much as I was. He was gracious enough to be very still as I took took his picture. It wasn't until I got home that I even saw the second duck. I printed out the picture and then use my pastels to color it in. It was simple but fun and a great reminder of a perfect moment in a wonderful day.
This week I am grateful for many unexpected but special moments like the one above. I find that as I move more slowly, try not to rush from thing to thing, and quietly watch and listen for those special moments they occur more and more. I am sure they were always there, I was just too busy to notice them. I hope that your week is filled with nothing but special moments.
What are you most grateful for this week?
