Her laughter, little skips, and spins

around the dancing tinkling water fountain,

a simple statement of Life’s joy.

Gratitude

The little things…

Sliced orange

Today, I am grateful for the little, simple things of life. For the gift of a new day, waking up, working out briskly, enjoying a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and my own tasty homemade minestrone soup. Yummy 😊

I am especially grateful for passing an academic assessment that had kept my studious nose on a grindstone like a high scholar.

I appreciate the little moments of life’s serenity to exhale and to be my best. The bits of opportunities life brings me each day must never be taken for granted; to live, to laugh, to love, to cry, to hope and to believe.

Each day I strive not to toss the day aside like an unwanted penny left by the sidewalk, knowing fully well that the addition of each penny increases the value of your total holding.

There’s always something to be grateful for.

P.S: There are several gratitude/thankful platforms in the blogosphere that you can tune into and get your ithankful going on. I can’t express in words the enormity of Joy and fulfilment that comes from having a heart of gratitude. Please check out Maria’s blog, Colline’s blog and Bernadette’s for thankful/gratitude challenges.

Love_sign_1[1] Love_sign[1]

I opened a bread bag to make some toast and left the piece of rubber string used for tying the nylon bag on the counter as I ate for some reason my eyes drifted to the counter and I saw that the string reflected on the counter to form a love sign so I just decided to play around a bit.

The first photo was taken just as I saw it and the second was my son walking past in his red jersey top and his reflection also got caught 🙂

Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and we can create beauty out of nothing.


Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.
