No matter who you are…a busy individual running a business…a student cramming for exams…a parent caring for youngsters…no matter your degree of busyness, I hope you remember to stop and enjoy the simple things in life.
The simple things are the abundance’s that have been given to us.
My kitchen is full of windows, one nearly spans the back wall. From it I can see my shop and a bird feeder.
This morning I noticed birds watching the feeder from afar…many beautiful hungry birds…intent on seeing when “the human” was going to fill their feeder with seed.
And then, I saw the red-headed woodpecker. He was a big young man. As if he knew I was trying to take a picture, he flew off each time I silently inched towards the window.
He made several trips to the feeder. With a mouth full of seed or corn, he would fly over to the electric pole. He carefully climbed the pole and placed his harvest inside the pole’s crevices and splits. Delightful…smart creature! He was happy. He knew his abundances.
Most of the birds had flown each time I took a picture…but a few remained in the lilac bushes.
Have a beautiful day…please savor your abundances, the smallest of things in life!
“Whatever we are waiting for- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.” – Sarah Ban Brethnach
