Everybody says, at some point “if only I had the talent to be . . .” a writer, a dancer, a singer, a chef. . . . lay aside the award you covet and pick up the pen, the spoon, the sheet music . . . put on the shoes! You can only be a dancer IF YOU DANCE! – Martha L Shaw

My late Uncle Bob had only one arm. As a child he played ball, rode his bike . . . he grew up and joined the yaught club, was a great golfer, personally rebuilt his house . . . I guess they forgot to tell him he could never do those things . . .

Look around you right now. Really look. Take a few deep breaths and notice the beauty in the ordinary. Share what you discover!
It is a lovely October day here in SC. I have my home office windows open to the cool air and sounds of my childhood . . . kids coming home from school and having fun, dogs barking happily, birds singing, men at work renovating their homes with power tools . . . the sounds and scents of cut lumber and mowed lawns brings Dad, my childhood home, my playmates back to me . . . it is like music and perfume to me. Blessings known by all the senses.
How about you? A colored leaf? A puppy’s kiss? A broken cookie? What?
