"I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars." ~Walt Whitman

What a good reminder of the beauty in simplicity to compare a leaf of grass with the heavens.  It is a good reminder for us who are caregivers to notice the beauty in the simple and seemingly small things in our lives.   Like Dwane knowing the odd sound of the engine might be low oil.  What a lovely event.  He probably saved us from significant damage to the engine.  A kind neighbor picked me up at the garage and gave me a ride home.  A small act reflective of the kindness of humanity.  We are having roast with garden-fresh vegetables for dinner.  One meal which can be a cause of gratitude for the abundance of good and nutritious food.  A meaningful and connecting conversation with my daughter; an example of the goodness in nurturing relationships and communication.  What in your life today is reflective of a greater beauty and goodness?
