just look


It's mid November now, and as I sit at my desk each day looking out the window into the back yard, I see the cycle of life slowly changing the appearance of things.  The golds and yellows of just a week or two ago are turning into browns.  The plants and trees once brilliant green are still beautiful, just different in texture and color now.  The grass, long dead from the summer sun, is once again thriving.  A healthy population of ladybug larvae turning into ladybugs occupies a post on our front porch.  Best of all, little birds have returned to the back yard.  

Whatever your circumstances are, wherever you are, there's always something to be grateful for, something beautiful to be found.   Just look.
