Though many of you may not believe what I am about to say, This is EXACTLY how I live my life!! Absolutely and irrevocably!!! After living with an extremely painful illness all my life and and having to give up my job which was my passion rather than just a way to pay the biills. I get up at 6 each morn ing and go out into my garden,followed by my beloved dogs,where I inspect and enjoy all my plants and flowers,often discovering delightful ladybirds in the grass ,dragonflies of various amazing colours hovering almost without movement above the newest blooms starting to open as the sun is rising to warm the air.My ferns and orchids are home to incredible green tree frogs with perfect smiles on their gorgeous faces,and the birds which call my garden home are exquisite in their beauty. I spend about an hour each morning out in the peaceful haaven of my plants,before then going back inside to brew a fresh pot of delicious leaf tea which I then slowly enjoy as I sit with an old book or play with my dogs. I take life just a day at a time,with some better than others,but always enjoying the aspects of the day which I can.Somehow I am always able to smile,and I make a genuine effort to make others smile as well!! I always believe that a smile is both priceless and free at the same time.The reciver has been given a gift beyond price and value while the giver has freely shared such a precious gift! It is a simple pleasure which nothing else compares with. Take a deep breath and open your eyes to the wonders all about you every day.You will see life from a whole new perspective and one which will make YOU smile!!
