Simple Sunday

We often get so busy with our lives we forget the simple things. Our minds are filled with day to day life, writing deadlines, illnesses, and the chaos of life with children. Sometimes we're so caught up in our own thoughts we forget to stop and just breathe.

In an effort to take a minute or two at least once a week, particularly now, when I really need reminding there is a beautiful world out there, I bring you Simple Sunday. Each Sunday, before the hectic workweek begins, I'll post a picture of something or someplace. Below it will be a blurb of my thoughts, feelings or just random daydream imaginings. Post your thoughts on the picture in the comments.

To kick things off, here is today's picture:

Even as winter puts her touch upon the land, life still survives, waiting for the sun to shine strong again. The beauty of the plant traced by winter frost is colorful and captivating. Life is also present in the fine web woven between the flowers and stems by a spider who is sure to be lurking nearby.
