lovely and imperfect


today was:

storm clouds and sunshine

a slow easy run in the grass along the shore

chasing Rave and his stuffed pink hippo through every room of the house while laughing like a lunatic

a mug of lemongrass tea and the writing of Irish poet and philosopher, John O'Donohue

gratitude for rich friendships, old and new

beginning a delightful e-course entitled The Art of Living Cheerfully by the ever enchanting Madelyn Mulvaney (ooh, it's good!)

discovering two treasured cards and a package in my mailbox

lunch delivered by my favorite vegan cafe

followed by the florist dropping off these cheery orange beauties

a winsome beginning to a birthday week

 May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

~ John O'Donohue
