After watching too much news it was time to turn off the TV and go out to find beauty in this world. It didn’t take long and wasn’t hard to do. At the end of our street someone had taken the time to write inspirational saying on each street corner in different coloured chalk. Not sure who did this but it sure brought smiles to a lot of faces. Next, we popped into the used bookstore to have a little visit with the owner and on the way there came across a couple sandwich boards with feel good quotes. Then it was time for an afternoon caffeine fix and two lovely ladies sitting outside at the cafe made a fuss over Holly and offered to watch her while I went in to get my coffee. All this in twenty minutes.

When the world seems ugly we need to remind ourselves there is beauty all around us if that if we choose to find it we most certainly will.
