Simple and Small

There is something soul-feeding about noticing and appreciating the small and lovely things about a day.  The way curtains whisper and tell secrets in a breeze.  The way a song can pulse through your limbs and move your feet.   Light in a baby's eyes.   


Notes from friends tucked away in good books.  

The way an old record wobbles and warbles around a turn table. 

The way textures diverge and contrast.  

Reminders to tilt heads back and give laughter wings.

And the way words, no matter their age, can still slay your soul.

It's Wednesday.  And you may be smack dab in the middle of a really long week.  Life is hard.  It just is.  We live in a broken place with broken people who break things.  And the heaviness of some seasons seem to last forever.  But life and hope can be found there, too.  Pops of color among the backdrop of grey.

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

The quiet, little beauty of this day is calling to you, waiting to perch and sing it's simple song.  It is not too late to change the direction your heart is heading.  

Go.  Discover.  Breathe it in.  And enjoy.

  2. I loved that quote. Then I read who wrote it, and it has a whole greater meaning. Can. not. even imagine what that meant for her. Thanks for sharing. Love you, Ang!

    1. isn't that insane? humbling and profound... and I just think, you know if ANNE can say that...what excuse do I have?
