Early Morning

Just to prove its not been wet all day - this was the view from our kitchen window this morning. He/she is one of 3 regular visitors to our garden. When we moved here five years ago, a family of deer greeted us at breakfast the first morning. Even though they're around at some point most days, we never tire of admiring their beauty and their gracefulness. We don't have anything in the garden for them to destroy. They bring their own magic.
Its a gift. We don't feed them or care for them, yet they persist in bringing us joy.Aren't there lots of things in our lives like that. They come unbidden but bring change, sometimes for the better. It would be good to be more switched on to those agents that bring welcome changes, occasional notes of joy and less ground down by the negative forces that are always around. I am convinced those good things are there. We just need to look that bit harder to see them.

Great picture. And how lucky you are to have such visitors.
As Elizabeth Barret Browning said:
"Earth's crammed with heaven
and every common bush afire with God,
and only he who sees takes off his shoes,
the rest sit round and pluck blackberries."
We need to train our hearts to notice the 'take off your shoes' moments.
