Life is in the Details

The details are not the details. They make the design. ~ Charles Eames

 I awoke this morning a little later than usual and lingered awhile before crawling out of bed.

Life is in the Little Details

So much to do in the short amount of time I had left at my sisters house left me feeling a bit paralyzed. Frankly, I didn’t want to start. “Just a little while longer”… my repeated mantra.

But the smell of coffee has a way of changing things; an invisible force beckoning me to rise up and shine.

As I grabbed the coveted cup of coffee, on a whim I also snagged my camera, and headed outside for a walk about the property.

Immediately I was enchanted! Her yard is a feast for the eyes. In the 38 plus years my sister has lived here she has created beautiful vignettes about the property; little details just waiting to be discovered.

There is magic waiting around every corner! Splendid and delightful on their own, but a masterpiece when all are woven together.

As I wandered about, captivated with all I saw, I began to ponder on my own little vignettes.

The little details of my life that have formed who I am today.

None are insignificant or discarded, but are being used to weave a tapestry that has been created for a purpose by a great designer.

I like the sound of that.

      Thanks Janine. I am glad you enjoyed it. I stopped by your site Janine’s Confessions of a Mommyholic earlier this morning and loved your latest post “Baking, Bingo, Books…What Do You Do to Unwind? Plus Memorial Day Specials!!” We obviously are both on the same wavelength. Taking time to stop and smell the roses is so important!!!
      Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends. Gather around the table and tell your stories and build some lasting memories!

      Thanks Marlys. There were so many fun things to discover in my sisters yard. The best thing was taking my coffee, or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day and wandering off to a cozy little spot. It was so peaceful and serene. Thanks again for hosting and providing a place to share. Blessings..Shari
