Day 12 - Marvel

As I was getting ready this morning I saw this lacewing on my bathroom wall.  Its wings shimmered in the sunlight and I stopped what I was doing, mesmerised by the insect's beauty.  And then I laughed.  Twelve days ago I would have either squashed this bug or shooed it out the window.  These days I'm wandering around marveling at every little thing like a toddler discovering the world for the first time.  I suppose I look rather ridiculous, but at the same time, I'm learning to see the gifts in each day as well as the gift of each day.

Tomorrow is not promised.
