Looking for Some Beauty Today?

Are you looking for some beauty on this very dreary, windy first day of November?  It's all  around you.  You just have to keep your eyes open and look carefully.  It's easy to feel down and discouraged at the coming of winter.  Yet, if we train ourselves to look for the beautiful things in life, our spirits are lifted.

Here are a few of the beautiful things I've seen lately.

Late afternoon sun gleaming through the windows.

The smell of fresh-from-the-oven biscuits

The creative combination of my brain and sewing machine.

Flickering flames.

The silhouette of tree branches.

The last bit of color clinging to the trees.

Beauty is there.  You just have to be alert and keep your eyes open!
