  3. I always do notice the beauty in the simplest things, but the simple things never notice me.

  5. Food for thought indeed and very true.

    There is beauty in the smallest of things - a snow crystal, each strand of a spider's web, a dewdrop, a buttercup, a blood cell. Everywhere there is design, order and symmetry even, down to the size of an atom, there is perfection in creation.

    My grandmother was a fount of wisdom - amongst her many sayings was, "If you pay attention and love the smallest things, the big things shall follow." :)

    1. How beautifully you said that! I should have had you write my post! ha. Some of my favorite things...a snowflake, a flower, a lady bug, a rain drop, a whispy cloud, a bird's egg, the scent of some things..... All amazingly beautiful and perfectly created.

      I love you grandma...she was so wise

    2. Yes, the more we think about it there is a grand design to everything - the srand of DNA is absolute perfecrion. A dragonfy's wings, a butterfly, and not just sight, sounds as well. Without perfection Charles could not have sang that beautiful song. :)

      Yes I loved my very wise grand mother - I am looking forward to meeting her again one day. For every baby entering the family she used to lift it's head high (along with body of course lol) and rub its hand with gold. But when she got a bit old we were frightened of her dropping the babies. lol

    3. And when you talk like this, I can see a lot of your grandmother in you! :)

      Delete
    4. But I don't drop babies from great heights! ROFL
      But I see what you mean - but no-one can emulate her :)

      Delete
    5. Well, I hope you don't drop them, either! haha. So was rubbing gold in their hands supposed to be good luck?

      Delete
    6. Well, the idea of holding baby's head up high was that she/he would do well in the world and be very successful in every way - perhaps like blessing the new life . . . . and to rub the hands with gold meant to become very affluent and secure, Did it work? Well, it depends on one's point of view. A lot of us became very happy and blessed in many ways, but not neccessarily financially, but with one exception, a cousin of mine became a multi millionaire and owned a famous racehorse that came second in The Grand National. Did the wealth make him happy? - No. I'll do a post about him. :)

      Delete
    7. And did she drop you? lol....

      Oh, that's very true....true happiness cannot be bought with money!

      Delete
    8. She might have dropped me . . . . . that would explain a few tings! LOL
      . . . . . and you are right . . . . it is LOVE that makes the world truly go round! :)
