do you find yourself in awe at this time of year?? do you see things that you might have missed any other time of the year?? do you find it amazing that people seem to go just that little bit extra for others?? do you see your surroundings with a little more magic??
it's funny that is seems to take a season created on a miracle to see a miracle...what would happen if we all stopped to see the miracles on a more profound level...in those day to day things. in trying to find my direction for OLW this week...i cam e across a fabulous quote...
there are 2 ways to live life; to live as if nothing is a miracle, to live as if everything is a miracle.
you definitely don't need to be a scientist to see the truth in this...there is something just a bit miraculous about watching a sunrise or sunset. there is something miraculous about a baby being born...or seeing a plant grow from seed. there is something miraculous in the singing of a song...or the beauty of a dance. or watching your child read his first book. loose his first tooth. take his first steps...smile...laugh...speak...there is something miraculous about the fact that we continue to do these things as we grow. we are surrounded by miracles every day...in the little things, the small details, the otherwise unnoticeables.
i choose to live a miraculous life...to absorb those little things, to pay attention to the small details...to notice...it's one of the things i lvoe about scrapbooking...it draws you to these things...makes you notice the beauty where others might not...to listen where others might be deaf...to sing, to dance...to enjoy life on a different level...this is where we find those everyday miracles...
so go have a beautiful day filled with miracles and stop by OLW to see how miracles fill the rest of the OLW dt.
