Aren't these the most beautiful weeds you've ever seen?  They cropped up in the yard and I snapped a few photos before the gardener got to them.

I am trying to slow down and notice the beauty that is all around.  It's not easy for me, it doesn't come naturally.  It completely goes against my personality.

Life is so busy.  I am constantly running around and sometimes I worry that I might be missing the point.  That in my rush to get things done, I might miss all the good stuff; all the beauty and the little everyday moments that make it all worthwhile.

I want to take it all in, to pay attention, and to be more aware of all there is to be grateful for.  Every hug and laugh and bedtime story and even...the weeds. 


  1. I was thinking before I read the blurb after the pictures, "How awesome is it that she found the beauty in a bunch of WEEDS!"
    I agree with you on needing to stop and slow down. I do the same thing. Then I find my days have all but blown right past me. Gosh!
    Thanks for the reminder.
