Appreciating the Little Things (and being Serenaded)

I promised myself when I started this blog that I would post at least once a week. As life has taken interesting twists and turns, sometimes that is not possible. These past few weeks have been filled with tough situations and decisions. At times I find myself falling into the "what if" syndrome. But just when I got really down a couple of things happened.

- I was serenaded. Yes, a perfect stranger sung his rendition of Jesus Loves Me in the parking lot of one my favorite places, the library. There was no hidden agenda as he simply bowed slightly, smiled and said "Have a great day, sister." And you know what? I did.

- I have a great appreciation for nature. I've been known to disappear to a beautiful park or beach to get away. A friend sent these pictures of a rare white peacock who looks like snowflake.

I thought he (because only males display feathers this way, right?) was gorgeous.

So, thank you to my friend for the pictures and if by a slim chance the singing gentleman is reading my blog, thank you for the heartfelt song.
