Friday's Special Moment of Gratitude
Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope that no matter what you are doing it is special. Today was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the air was crisp and cold. When I stood outside and looked up at the sky it was bright blue with not even one cloud. It made start to think about spring and how I wanted to create a new space in the backyard to draw and read and to just be quiet each day. I recreate this space each year and it is always something that I look forward to doing. I keep it small and easy to maintain. That way I can enjoy it more. For some gardening is the fun part, for me it is looking at the results. So I am a person who loves plants in pots.
If you have been here before, you know that it is my practice to reflect on what I am grateful for at the end of each week. Today it is something that I have no control over. Today I am very grateful for the blue skies that I was able to enjoy this morning. Looking at the deep blue sky was like visiting a lovely gallery that had been created just for me. What was really awesome was that I didn't even have to get dressed up to go. They allowed me in - pajamas and all. Learning to take a moment each day to appreciate something in nature and then combining that with a deep breath or two is something else that I am grateful for this week. I hope that you too will take a moment today to look up at the sky and take a deep breath. It is truly a Valentine's gift you can give yourself all year long.
Please take a moment to visit all of the wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday and Creative Everyday. It is wonderful way to start the weekend.
