June 1 Second Chances

Yesterday I stepped outside for just a moment and from across the yard a tiny bit of amber caught my eye.    I wandered over and there she was, a lonely mushroom with her head held high, seemingly defying gravity or at least beating the odds.    I grabbed the camera and snapped just one shot and the combination of luck and light made me see her in a new way – not a teetering fungi but a graceful flower.

Sometimes you have to look twice to see what’s really there.

Today I’m thankful for

  1. those who have given me a second chance, and a third and …
  2. a place and time to share parts of me that are otherwise buried.
  3. for the gift of two kidneys instead of just one.

For what are you thankful?
