Last night I went outside around 11:30 to observe the Moon with Mars over top of it. I was attracted to two bright stars to the left of the Moon and Mars and was surprised to find that one of the bright stars was actually Saturn. It was a gorgeous night out-cool with a breeze-very welcome after the scorcher of a day we had. Spring left quick and summer’s heat and humidity is here. The fireflies delighted me again. There must have been five hundred or more dancing through the meadow behind the house.
While viewing the night sky and the fireflies I was remembering all my family members and friends and those I do not know who have served or are currently serving our country as it was Memorial Day. To my knowledge my family started serving in World War One.
Unbeknownst to me a little warrior was taking his last breath. I received the news today that a friend’s young son had passed away yesterday. He was a fighter from day one and was always smiling. It makes me sad.
Tonight I have rededicated myself to living in the moment, finding beauty in everything and trying to spread happiness. The purple hydrangeas and petunias make me smile. I enjoyed running in the rain tonight. And I wish you all peace, love and happiness.
I hope you find beauty in everything, live in the moment and spread happiness.
If you wish to share how you find beauty, live in the moment or spread happiness I would love to hear from you.
