Simple Abundance



One of my favorite, all-time books is by Sarah ban Breathnach and is called, "Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy". ( I actually met the author once in a MD thrift store). The book is designed with about a page a day reading and I have been doing so, off an on for over 10 years. Rereading the introduction, I realized how much of her philosophies on life I have incorporated into myself. I will simply quote her:

"Simple Abundance has enabled me to encounter everyday epiphanies, find the Sacred in the ordinary, the mystical in the mundane, fully enter into the sacrament of the present moment".

The other day I had to stay home as I was not feeling well. It is my annual 40 days & 40 nights ot tea-time and I had just come across this cute tea set at "The Boutique" ( GoodWill) for 2 bucks....I decided an additional treat to comfort myself was to have flowers with my tea....the last of my blue hyacinths...just as fragrant as the first ! What a wonderful treat!!!!
