It is not always easy to walk through this world in a state of enchantment, especially when the winter has lingered on for as long as it has this year. The sun is shining today and once the snow melts and everything turns green it will be easier to see the beauty that surrounds me. The challenge is always finding the beauty in the midst of the ugly. Looking for the brighter side, the cup half full, the rose petal tint. These things never come easy to me when I am in the midst of daily turmoils or stresses. I keep a gratitude journal for this reason. Some days, when the sun isn’t shining and the blossoms aren’t budding and things aren’t going my way, I need to physically make myself see the beauty around me. I need to remind myself of how lucky I am, how much I have. I need to remind myself to look at the big picture and not get caught up in the mundane worries of life.

  1. I know exactly how you feel and what you are saying. This has been the worst winter in a long time. I don’t know why God planted me here in the mtns of SW Va. he should have sent me to the gulf shores! It IS getting better little by little. Thank goodness we have paint colors!
