So today I choose to stop the tornado, or rather stop before the tornado and recognize how great the everyday things are. And to recognize how much happiness, joy and beauty surrounds me on a regular basis. And to recognize that this is not the reality of many many people on this planet of ours, and thus I am lucky and have every reason to be grateful.
So without further ado and in no particular order, snippets of joy:
Early morning walks around the reservoir near our house
Local soccer games
Friends who help put together beautiful new dining room tables
And curious puppies
Celebrations of the Earth and all she gives to us
Performance art and unicorns?!
Little league games (and nephews who pitch!)
4 year olds who wiggle their eyebrows at you for 72hrs
And little kid birthdays
And a beautiful wife
What a gorgeous tornado it is! Happy long weekend my friends - enjoy every beautiful moment!
