Find what you’re looking for – and then some

A long, long, time ago I found myself married to a stark-raving-psycho and a friend said in a loving way, “I’ve always believed that we get what we deserve.”  I told him, THANKS!  Then he clarified by saying “we find what we are looking for”.

So I started believing more in myself and looking for the beauty in everything.  Now I have the perfect husband and I find even more beauty than I expect.

I thought the pale green moss was pretty as the morning sunlight lit it up.  But I didn’t see the delicate work of the spiders until I looked closer at the larger image.  That was unexpected (Weekly Photo Challenge).

Sometimes it’s easier to appreciate beauty when we are comfortable.   But we can also take everything for granted.  I have found that the more grateful I am for my blessings, the more blessings I realize I have.  (And, on a religious note, if I always look toward Christ it’s like wearing rose-colored glasses.)

I don’t think we always “get what we deserve” but I do think we find what we are looking for.  So….what do you want to find today?
