Sometimes I feel like I don't have an original thought of my own and I simply capitalize on the thoughts of others,
but when I saw this quote on Instagram, it resonated with me.
I was a happy child
and I am a happy old lady.
I attribute that happiness to my daily celebration of the "ordinary".
Each day in our garden brings a smile to my face.
The sight of fortnight lilies in full bloom this morning
was the perfect opening for another ordinary day.
Steve and I get quite giddy when we spot more tomatoes on the vine and can't wait until they ripen.
These pretty yellow flowers, or maybe they are weeds, are part of the ordinary view on our morning walks.
I enjoy an ordinary day on the beach
as much as a spectacular one.
I was talking to a friend recently about everyday life
and I told her I was content to simply watch my flowers bloom.
