I have always heard it said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and I believe it.  I am excited each year when our Christmas cactus start to bloom.  When they are mature they make me think of Angels flying.  I think they are beautiful.

What do you think when you see a milk jug, Sprite bottle, Tide jug, or a fabric softener jug?  I have a friend that sees a thing of beauty.  He recycles everything and I am really glad he does because when he finishes with these items they are truly a thing of beauty.

I don’t know who said the quote I am leaving you with this morning but, I like it.  I hope you do too:  “Great things are possible when they come from a place of enthusiasm and energy.”  Have an energetic  day.  Melanie
