REFLECTION: The bud on the Morden Sunrise rose popped open this morning. With its warm gold and apricot tones, it’s aptly named. I wondered at its beauty.
During yesterday morning’s riverside walk, a beaver surfaced, nosing its way downstream – slicing smoothly through the water, ripples streaming to either side. I wondered at its ease.
Last week I accompanied my grandson to the Exhibition Parade. As the little guy watched the Shriners circle their mini sports cars, he roared with head-thrown-back laughter and slapped his thigh like an old man delivering the punch-line of his favorite joke to a brand new audience. I wondered at the pure unadulterated joy.
ACTION: What other marvels of life and nature will cross my path and yours today? Will we pause as we move through our lists of to-do’s and be present enough to notice the ta-da’s?
I wonder! Do you?
