Happy Morning

To me, this is a happy morning.... very happy happy morning:

Quiet... outside... 70 degrees... morning.... bird chirp...flowers... coffee.... no rush..... just sitting...

Journal time... time to write... time to listen... time to pray... reading the book by Esther De Waal- " lost in wonder". and I think I've read it about 4 times... but each year I need to read it again and remember what it says... about taking time to really "see" things.... to listen.. and to be.... to wonder.

Flowers in the sweetest little vase... brought back from Cashier's mountain festival. A local potter made it and put a bird and a ladybug on the little vase.  A ladybug is a symbol for Chinese adoptions and a bird is such a sweet reminder to dream:)

Tea towel says it all....  w o n d e r.

And I love this quote below from "Lost in Wonder":

"G.K. Chestering once said that although wonders would never be lacking in this world, wonderment will.

.... Eric James summed it all up for me when he told us to...

Re-discover the wondering heart."

And that is my fall motto....

Yea for wonderment... yea for re-discovering the W O N D E R!
