Miraculous Day

Sunday, May 19, 2013

" There are only two ways to live your life . One is as though nothing is a miracle . The other is as though everything is a miracle." Albert Einstein

If you are reading this blog on this glorious Sunday than you are alive and very very lucky.

The day is spread before you and you may do anything you wish with it.

You may decide to spend part of the day exercising your heart and lungs as I did as I walked round many plant stores in our area ,looking for more vegetable plants for our garden. Today's finds included cucumbers , broccoli,tomatoes, thyme, cilantro, sage, and a glorious purple plant . These will go well with our basil, pineapple mint , chives , and oregano and parsley plants. We are also growing peppers, eggplant , yellow pear tomatoes. squash, beans yellow and green. We also have kale plants , Swiss chard , and a variety of lettuce. Finishing the garden is a line of marigold plants.

It is such a miracle that one we were able to scrape enough money together to purchase these plants that will save us so much money in the long run. The second miracle will happen if the plants grow at all if they are not bothered by the wind or lack of water or too much sun or rain.

I know I will walk more today either with my husband ,my daughter , my dog or all three.

I will spend part of my miracle day eating healthy food . We have pineapple ,watermelon, oranges ,bananas and apples all ready to eat. I will make some Swiss chard later. I also will make a lovely salad to take to work. I never buy high fat meat so I know we will have a healthy supper. I never use salt or fry my food either.

I will spend part of the day reading in the 60 degree sunshine as I watch my husband plant all those glorious plants I may even help a little we will see.

I will reflect a little on the life of my father -in law Richard Page who lost a long battle with lung cancer . I remember how much he loved his children .How he never complained and mostly how he had over 300 hundred people come to his funeral .

I will happily spend the day just being alive and enjoying all the miracles before me . Because everyday and everything is a miracle if you look for them.

    I enjoy your writing style and it always looks so nice with the picnic scenery. You are right about spending this day alive and being at peace with everything all around you. This is late Sunday evening but I had to stop by and wish you a good week.

    What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.
