a beautiful thought

It’s finally here. My last day of work. Tomorrow will end. I will grow. My sweet friend sent me a card this week with a great thought. She wrote me about a story she had recently heard that made her think of me. The quote was:

“Buddhists believe that sometimes when everything is in turmoil, it’s because something wonderful is ready to be born and that thing is distracting you so it can have some privacy during the birthing process.”

What a lovely idea. Although I do not have children, I know the birthing process is not only painful, stressful & glorious, but it can also seem down right indignant. At least that is, from my modest perspective. I love the idea that while I had so much of my energy purposefully, or not, focused on the immediate in front of my eyes, there was something wonderful & new being birthed behind closed doors without me having to participate in the messy details.

My wonderful something has been born and I can’t wait to embrace it upon my return.

  1. Love the Buddhist quote/story.

    And your tulips are downright gorgeous the way they’re pictured against the blue background. Great photo. Frame it.

  2. Wow! So very cool to see the before and after of the flowers, and what you wrote on the initial post.

    Your Buddhist quote gives me peace for my own upcoming and expected and a little-scarey turmoil.

    Thanks!
