the world is beautiful

Pay attention, the world is beautiful…

A frost flower is formed when thin layers of ice are extruded from long-stemmed plants in autumn or early winter. The thin layers of ice are often formed into exquisite patterns that curl into “petals” that resemble flowers.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving.  It was lovely.  We went on a dinner cruise with family (and 340 other ‘close friends’) down the Willamette River.  The food was delicious , company was great and no clean up!  

Later in the evening, we were home and enjoying an after dinner whiskey… High West double rye if you’re wondering…and a chat.  At some point, I commented on how enthusiastic Roger and his family are.  They often comment on experiences, everyday and the out of ordinary with big expletives: beautiful!, gorgeous!, so fun!, the nicest person you’ll ever meet!, delicious!, wonderful!, so amazing!  When I say they often comment, I mean often.  All seven siblings have a zest for life they express routinely.  

Jojo, our host and Roger’s sister said at times she felt she overdid it.  I said, “no way.  Don’t change.”  I find the excitement contagious.  I find their enthusiasm inspires me to look at the world more positively.  

So today, I’m sharing my picture of a frost flower.  It’s gorgeous!  and wonderful! and lovely! And amazing!
