Small Moments of Beauty

I am going through trouble and sorrow just now. But one day as I leave the hospital, I find a huge, thick, shiny golden leaf on the bonnet of my car. I take it home carefully and put it in front of my picture of Brighid, Goddess of Poetry. Another day, as I go to unlock my car door for my trip to visit the hospital, I find a butterfly perched on the handle. I put a finger close to its nearest wing without touching, and it gently flutters to a branch just above. Nature, I decide, is sending me comfort.

The Best Feeling in the World

Another blogger invited people to add to her list. Here are my nominations:

Breathing air that’s clean.
Cresting a hill and seeing the sparkling blue ocean.
Stepping out my front door, early after sunrise, on a beautiful autumn morning (such as today's).
