You make me........


"better"






did you know? You make me better...... better at noticing and better at appreciating the little things in life. I see your pictures.....and I read your words... and I look at your families.....and all the lovely things you make...... And, it makes me "better"........ there is simply no other way to put it.




Because of you, I look at things closer, I can find beauty in a flowering weed in the garden.... or a bird perched upon the fence. I take the time to watch now, and to listen..... I stop to watch the sunset, and I don't worry about how long it takes, or what I should be doing instead.... I just do it..... I see the simplest things now, I mean really see them..... and find myself running for the camera to catch that dewdrop, or that glistening spiders' web....




I appreciate my gifts, my talents, and my abilities much more now...... I see what you have made with your two hands, and I know I too can work magic whether it be with thread, yarn, paper or paint.......




never before would I have thought to take a picture of a cake, unless it was on a birthday, but I will now...... just because I find it pretty........




you make me slow down, you make me think, you make me create, you make me smile.........




and you make me .......... "better".........
