Peace for your Path...

It's a Wonder-Filled Life

Battling a head cold today along with lots of "Dark Night of the Soul" stuff...a real two steps forward, ten steps backward kind of week. Do you know the kind?

And here, at the end of my little street is a hibiscus hedge filled with the most spectacular pink-coral blossoms. Lily led me to them as she so often does.

Blessed. Beyond words. Just blessed...

May you, too, be swept away in a simple moment of wonder today. You don't have to seek it out. Just let yourself be Found.

Peace for your Path,

Thanks, Deborah. I knew you would understand. I think the wonder I felt related to this particular moment was linked to the fact that I was not looking for anything cheerful. I was pretty much trudging along in a gloomy haze fretting over who-knows-what, content in my mini-misery, and then "pow" there was this whole hedge of beauty that I almost ran right into. It's a rainy day here today, so the sun was not even shining. If it had been, I likely would not have been able to handle how truly gorgeous and vibrant these flowers are. Stopping by your "Apples in Wonderland" right now! Love your blog so much and was thinking of it when I chose my title of this post! :) Love, Robin
