What is Beautiful?
Beautiful — by Websters dictionary definition : –adjective
1.having beauty; having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc.; delighting the sensesor mind: a beautiful dress; a beautiful speech.
Recently I recieved several emails saying that they “would’ve joined in Friday finding beauty but their post just wasnt pretty enough.”
*hands on hips and kicking the dirt!* Hrrrumph!
This celebration of beauty was NOT meant for perfection.
Whether it’s something physically beautiful or some kindness we see… This project is designed for us to slow down a moment and record that beauty to be enjoyed again and again.
It’s meant to help us change HOW WE SEE our lives and appreciate it more.
That’s the beauty of a blog– we capture the moment in time for us to revisit and others to be touched and… like the snow ball rolling down the hill, continues to get bigger and bigger and more “beautiful”.
I stopped by my sister’s office the other day to have lunch with her.
Sadie, the official door greeter, gets to come to work and welcomed me with a darling smile.
My sis works for a lovely family owned business. Her particular job is all about numbers–Uggh
(I am so right brained I limp– so numbers would NOT be beautiful to me…)
She dolls up her office for each season or holiday — surrounding herself with what is beautiful to her…Family and whimsy.
Can you tell she has a bit of Spring fever?
One day, just for appreciation, her awesome boss had a print framed and delivered to her office.
Look at those wonderful colors! Now that’s beauty to me– not the print entirely– but the thought that came from an appreciative boss.
Taking the time to say how much they value her daily efforts was simply BEAUTIFUL.
On the way out Sadie thanked me for stopping by and reminded me to come back soon. (She obviously has attended charm school.)
