a rainbow at my feet...

Sometimes we look for beauty in our everyday. Other times, the beauty finds us.
Huckle & I had walked up the drive to collect the mail. On our way back he stopped to collect some treasures from the ground. I stood & watched as he busied himself with the gravel & leaves. I was smiling, thinking how lovely it must be to explore & discover the beauty of gravel & leaves. As I was looking toward the ground, I noticed a rainbow. A wonderful, scattered leaf rainbow covering the whole driveway. I walk this driveway everyday & only today do I notice this great delight. I squatted down beside my little man & together we collected a rainbow.
It's truly a marvelous thing to find such beauty amongst the everyday. To know that no matter how rubbish the day might be, or how many times you've walked that path before; if you take a moment to look around, you're sure to find something special.
Do you think this way too?
What unexpected beauty have you discovered recently?

Isn't it beautiful.... to think how often we just pass things by.
Sometimes it's nice to stop and smell the roses/pick up leaves!
