What Do You See?

Look at this photo taken from the lounge in our cottage. What do you see?

Look beyond the bars.

Do you see the camellia flowering?

Do you see fields in the distance?

Do you see the herd of cows and calves in the fields?

"Managing the purse strings tightly can make one feel deprived," someone very dear to me commented this week.

But, really, it all depends on what you CHOOSE to see. 

Are you looking at the bars in your life, or are you choosing to look beyond them to the blessings in your life?


  1. so true my wise little sis, love you dearly xxx

  2. So true. And very artistically presented. We are constantly surprised by the blessings surrounding us . These blessings are visible to us because we choose a simpler lifestyle and are therefore not distracted by stuff.Lovely post thanks for sharing. xx

  3. I agree, too often we only see what is directly in front of us, not beyond. TFS

  4. Thanks for the kind comments. I love receiving feedback.
