I saw a “beauty” calendar the other day
that was full of breathtaking scenes,
from a blazing sunset over a tropical beach
to snowcapped mountains.
Incredibly lovely,
but those kinds of views are unattainable
for most of us from day to day.
That’s why I think it’s critical
to look for and find
the pretty little things
that often go unnoticed from day to day.
Like a watercolor sunrise,
a ladybug looking for spring
or the way a melting ice cream cone
conjures up sweet summer memories.
This is everyday beauty,
every bit as important
to celebrate.
