Beauty In The Day
Wednesday was a day spent at home, starting with teaching some music lessons followed by spending time at home with Trevor and working around the house. I stopped several times to notice the beauty in the day. Here is what I saw...
The simple glow of a votive candle in a jelly jar.
A four year old's morning masterpiece.
A fresh rose bouquet...$3.99 at Aldi. Doesn't cost much to bring natural beauty into your home, and what life it adds to the table!
Produce to enjoy. Nature's bounty, provision, and color.
A homemade cappuccino mix made by one friend in a Mary Poppins mug given to me by another friend. At 31 I count true friends a rare and beautiful treasure.
A lovely and unique necklace and earring set given to me by mom this week. The white wood gave me a sense of freshness, sunshine, and winter days with spring around the corner.
Books that my son and I shared in the green chair, some which made him giggle impossibly. Belly laughs are music to my ears!
A five year old's paint palette bursting with color and possibility.
And her painting of a birthday party. She loves birthdays, and is already planning for hers in April. She wants this to go on the door. I think that's a fine idea.
Most days if we look for it, there is beauty to be found. What can you count as beautiful today?
