“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” — Confucius

Have you seen anything beautiful lately? Where do you find beauty that others have missed? And where do your children find it?

Please Help
I took these pictures last week at a nearby monastery. It is quiet, sunny, and green. It radiates peace and comfort. And it is a stark contrast to my friend Sarah’s hometown of Joplin, Missouri, where a terrible tornado destroyed the hospital that her children were born in, her daughter’s preschool, her church, and so much more of her beautiful city. Several blogger friends have put together an auction that will directly benefit Joplin relief efforts. Please, please stop by, show your support, and spread the word. Thank you!

  1. First off, your daughter and my daughter have the same fashion sense.
    Second, as for perceived beauty, today Col brought home a dead lady bug from school, ran inside first thing and made a little home (coffin?) for it.

  2. Stacia, I love this🙂

  3. Stacia, thank you SO much!🙂

  4. I was going to say your daughter and mine share the same sense of fashion, but apparently it must be a common thing. heh. I love these pictures.

    I went by Sarah’s site this morning and read her post. Terrifying. Sad. Just heartbreaking. I’m so afraid of storms and this year has just been bad.

  5. Thank you for the reminder. To look outside ourselves.

  6. The mountains we reside against are quite striking against the blue sky. It’s the one thing I will miss when we move.

    Thanks for thinking about Missouri! Joplin is 2 hours south of me, but a town I know very well. It’s one worth getting help from others.
