Recognizing Miracles


Winter steps out

In drabby light

Dressed in doldrums

Of grey and brown

And a sprinkling

Of warm white

Waiting and hoping

To be recognized.

  1. It’s so easy to miss those everyday little miracles because we’re so used to looking ahead, instead of being fully and totally in the moment. That’s where all the magic happens. Oh, and that is a lovely photo — what a gorgeous kitty! πŸ™‚

    • Ah, Gisele that is why I like to practice mindfulness. It helps me to practice looking for those everyday blessings. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I’m glad you like my Jack. He was sitting right by my side watching me and playing with the cursor as I typed you this reply. πŸ™‚
