My reflection today:

“ The world was made to be beautiful – but sometimes we get caught up in every day actions completely forgetting about this completely forgetting about that what is truly important are the simple, basic things in life – honest, pure emotions surrounded by the majestic beauty of nature. We need to concentrate on the freeness and peacefulness of nature and not on the driven material aspects of life. We need to smell the clear air after the rainfall and appreciate the good in things. Each of us must be responsible and do our part in order to help preserve a beautiful world – the waterfalls, the oceans, the mountains, the large gray boulders, the large green farms, the fluffy pink clouds, the sunrise and sunset, ladybugs, rainbows, dew, hummingbirds, butterflies, dandelions. We need to remember that we are here for a short time and that every day should count for something and that every day we should be thankful for all the natural beauty. The world is a wonderful place and we are so lucky to be part of it.” Susan Polis Schutz

Maybe this pandemic has given us time to stop and reflect on the beauty all around us. I don’t know about you, but I know there were so many times I was rushing to get to a meeting or an appointment that I never really had the time to look at the beauty all around our world. Thank you God for all the wonderful gifts around us.
