Isn’t it just the perfect color, the perfect contrast, the perfect size, in conclusion, just perfect to remind me during my walk this morning about the gratuitous gifts of nature, if we just take the time to observe all around us. It was just there by a mail box in all its splendor waiting to be admired, which I did. Mission accomplished. At least I noticed a fabulous display in all its perfection.
These hydrangeas are from Miss Raylene’s garden, now gracing my eyes and my table. I believe you can transmit appreciation and admiration to flowers, animals and most important, to other human beings. No questions about it. Look at the balance in the different shades of colors on these flowers. No one or anything can create such harmonious display of color and fragrance, when it’s possible. It makes me ponder about the abundance of gifts bestowed upon us by our Creator.
Oops! Someone lost a feather. Big one you may notice. Do you think it was during a fight, or struggling to survive? I wonder where its owner is right now. Hopefully this creature has or had incredible beautiful memories to keep on carrying on. I need to remind myself that the goodness of life so outweighs the misfortunes we sometimes are faced with. Balance, need to keep everything in balance and perspective.
It is my intention with each posting I do to transmit to my readers the abundance of beauty, goodness, and excellence all of us are constantly surrounded with. Sometimes I add humor, because even our Creator has a sense of humor. Must have one to have to deal with all of us.
So it was today…24 May, 2011…a day with a bouquet of flowers from me to all of you. Be happy!!!!
Your Happy Contessa
