Project 52 - Favorites

One of my favorite things is an unexpected moment. A moment of grace. Not given lightly and easily missed, these moments can lift your spirits and change the course of your day.
You have to be receptive and open to these moments because they are fleeting. You have to be prepared for them because they won't last long.
Last night at my friend Sally's house on her balcony, we saw a beautiful rainbow, a huge purple shaded evening cloud and I of course was not prepared. No camera!! But maybe I was only meant to sit amongst friends, enjoying some good food and wine, and a rainbow and a cloud. Maybe that was all the prepared for a moment I needed at that moment!
Moments of grace come on silent and cautious feet, trusting a bit to stand and be observed. They are only meant to be observed for if you step toward them to grasp them they disappear.
They don't stay forever. You have to pay attention when they present themselves.
Moments such as these lift our spirits.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
