I just started reading "Wherever You Go There You Are" by Jon Kabat-Zinn and so I went for my morning walk not with the purpose of getting a workout but with being more mindful of the moment. It was a beautiful start to the day.Back home and catching up on the blogs I'm following, the first one I read is yours.How fitting!

They are so cutely wrapped that I wouldn't want to open it. How am I kidding, I'd just open it very carefully so not to spoil the wrapping.

I have to remind myself to double knot sometimes, but yes, the strength is so needed.

They are always gifts, these days that come to us. We must learn to receive them gracefully. I think you already know how.
