May you take time
to celebrate the quiet miracles
that seek no attention.

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
around the heart of wonder.

    Susan I so admire your photography. More than you likely know. You have such an excellent eye and eye for the aesthetic beauty of the everyday. Impossible to select a favourite for each one falls into that category. In case there isn’t another post beforehand, may you and yours enjoy the best of the Christmas season and may it be filled to overflowing with love, laughter, and the simple things in life.
