CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY IN THE ORDINARY

MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD.  THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.
MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

This week again it was hard to move my soul to celebration.  But, once more, I think that I am getting this idea of celebrating wrong.  I am concentrating on the grand moments of life.  The blow out the candle and make a wish moments and not realizing that these glorious moments are built on celebrating the ordinary moments of my life.

One of the consistent ordinary moments of my life is my morning walk.  This week there has been much to celebrate about my my morning ambulations.

The first is the beauty of my little town all decked out and waiting for the holiness of Christmas and the fun of Santa.

The second ordinary moments on my walks I celebrate this week has been the amazing balmy December weather we have been enjoying this December in New Jersey.

And this third ordinary moment I captured was this poor, little, confused pussy willow trying to bloom for Christmas:

I felt like he was the Little Drummer Boy of the the tree world this week.  Trying to show some flourish up against all those big pines full of lights and colored ornaments.

Wishing you a week filled with ordinary moments worth celebrating,

Bernadette

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. So true that the path to contentment is an appreciation of all of the little precious moments along the way. I start the day with a cup of hot herbal tea (ginger lemon, usually), prepared meditatively as I begin to think about the small chores I need to do. This works for me, since I need a calm, soothing starting point for the day.

  2. I just wrote of a couple of plants I think are still trying to grow despite some cold that we had during Thanksgiving week. We had the warmth all week too, then snow & cold returned yesterday. I love seeing the pussy willow, but sad to say there’s lots of months ahead before spring is really here! I have morning walks most days too, Bernadette, love seeing all the sights!
