An Irish Blessing
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.
~ from For Presence by John O’Donohue
Poets always remind us that we’re surrounded by beauty and everyday “miracles.” These are the things we see and take for granted every day. When was the last time you watched the sun set, truly felt your breath or held the hand of someone you loved? When we go through our day without taking the time to notice these small things, we miss out on the opportunity to feel wonder, awe, and connection. Finding ways to create joy through the day also brings about a sense of gratitude for all the blessings that surround us.
No matter how our day has been going or what’s going on in our life right now, we will value it more if we can see the golden blessings scattered throughout.
