These violets are almost hidden in the tall grass of our meadow… it would be so easy to walk past and see them only as patches of color.
It takes a closer look to really appreciate the spectacular markings and the simple beauty of this tiny flower.
A lot of life is like that.
We’re often so busy looking for something “more”… something bigger… something better… and sometimes we don’t stop and appreciate what we already have.
Learn to cherish the simple things and the ordinariness of your everyday life.
Slow down… take the time to really LOOK, really LISTEN, and really APPRECIATE.
You will not regret making the time to take that closer look.
