Finding peaceful moments each day

When I take time to simply observe, the ordinary often becomes extraordinary.

A late night sudden downpour, complete with thunder and lightning, becomes a symphony for all five senses.

A momentary glance through my front window reveals a glimpse of someone stopping to smell a rose along my front fence, backlit by the setting sun. A perfect tableau.

A little girl walking a puppy on a leash, crooning, “You’re my baby, aren’t you?” A vignette of childhood.

    I’ve always felt that life is much too short not to stop and pause to savour treasured moments. I love the ones you enjoyed, Jane! Good for you. . . . May you keep finding these “jewels” each day!

    I think most of us–myself included, big time–don’t do this often enough. Breathe. Look.

  3. Agree with Sammee…those moments help us through the rough ones. ~nan
