Okay, so before I get back to posting some fiction that is bouncing around my brain (literally–sometimes it hurts until I get it out and down through my little fingers which type the images through words onto a screen)…I just want to take a moment to encourage each of us to look around whatever setting in which we find ourselves.
What do we see?
I see a screen (which is a blessing itself as it allows me to communicate with the world from my tiny little desk). I see windows and sunlight streaming in through them, which produces Vitamin D and boosts endorphin levels. I see a photo of a child that once grew inside me which brings back fond memories. I see Kleenex for when my nose runs. I see Germ-X, which I can use to clean my hands after I use the Kleenex. I see artwork of children I love, a table where people sit to eat together and exchange ideas through conversation. I see a kitchen filled with memories of making sweets, breads, and dinners, and images of my family around the counter making plates of goodies to take to friends and neighbors.
What do you see?
Look a little deeper.
The blessings are all around us, if only we stop, look, and listen.
Hope you have a glorious weekend, my dear blog friends! I’ll catch up with you on Monday!
