“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” —Thornton Wilder
It’s been a week of frustrating moments here in Romania. I tried to make a haircut appointment for my son, and the scheduler hung up on me when we started having language issues. My daughter got sick … again. I tried to make banana pudding for dinner with friends. (Let’s just say, non-instant pudding mix doesn’t work quite the same.) Then a thunderstorm blew through. I opened all the windows. I tossed out my negativity as the cool breeze tickled my neck. I remembered what a blessing, what an adventure, spending this year in this country is for me and for my family. And when I started looking for treasures — from my baby’s new red shoes to the flowers blooming down the street — I found them.
Where do you find treasures? How do you jettison your negative thoughts? And do you love thunderstorms as much as I do?
See more plants and trees and babies (oh, my!) at Beth’s on Thursday.
