When everything is beautiful

"It's not that unusual, when everything is beautiful.
It's just another ordinary miracle today."
- Sarah McLachlan

Here are the everyday ordinary miracles that I am surrounded by...

Black and yellow butterflies, the smell of grass after a rainstorm, swallows building a nest in our backyard, chocolate chip cookies warm straight out of the oven served with cold milk, freshly baked bread, baby hummingbirds making their rounds, grape vines reaching for the sky, laughter and good friends, dreaming on the back porch in a hammock built for two, fresh flowers straight from the garden, butter pecan ice cream, a freshly mowed lawn, a call from a friend just when I needed to hear her voice and a twitterverse of inspiration.

I feel so richly blessed. What ordinary miracles are coming your way today?

Cover Mom

Never thought I would be on the cover of a magazine but here we are! Raising Maine is a fantastic publication for Maine Mothers and their online community is well worth joining. I love to read their blogs and it is a great way to network with other mothers as well as get great mommy ideas. Check them out at!
