An Apple a Day

This kid is checking out his apple.  He used to get his apple in slices and now here is the whole thing. The Child of Earth is fascinated with the apple he has just picked up from under the apple tree, whereas part of his young mind thought you picked apples up at the neighborhood grocery store.  This card today is all about perceptions and it reminds me of a quote by Wayne Dyer, "change the way you look at things and the things you look at change."

My niece graduates from University this weekend after 6 long and dedicated years of study and I am as proud as an aunt can be.  I look at her and can see all the opportunities and choices ahead for her and my sister can only see the empty nest.  Different perspectives. 
I never had children and feel absolutely blessed to have been apart of my nieces and nephews lives.  I look at them all grown up and sometimes think about how aged I have become. Yet, as long as there is the promise of tomorrow I need to remember I have choices and opportunities still ahead for me too.  Maybe the rabbit will help me find my next adventure. Where is a mirror, Ha

  1. "change the way you look at things and the things you look at change." This attitude can change hell into heaven and vice versa
    Good luck following it down the rabbit hole :)

  2. lovely post and viewpoint. Sometimes people act sympathetic when they realize we don't have kids. I just feel blessed, truly and completely.

  3. What an important thing to remember - that we have choices and opportunities no matter what stage of life we're in.
