The weather couldn't quite make up it's mind to shine brightly or blur dismally into chill clouds.
I couldn't quite make up my mind to feel like a hermit all day and retreat, hermit-like, into my rainy-day-but-non-Scottish Mood where style, productivity, and inspiration go out the window - or, alternatively, put a little extra something into my outfit, sit down in the studio, and knock off some of my best work. Sometimes, it can only be one or the other.
As I was lethargically wavering with as little thought process involved as possible (if I was going to fall into the slough of rainy day laziness, it would be a shame to waste any brain power!), I saw my precious Rifle Paper Co. journal on the table, and something clicked.
I love it when that happens. Turquoise and peach posies, pretty paper, a few little accessories... my outfit and my day suddenly became much brighter.
And then I saw a five leaf clover.
To me, the thrill and delight had nothing to do with legend - rather, I was so completely enthralled with my God, who has filled this world with so much spectacular beauty and unimaginable wonder. Then, right there in the middle is something so ordinary and humble - yet so special and unique - as my little five leaf clover.
Every day is so full of potential. So full of beauty. Don't ever give up fighting to keep that beauty alive, to keep your heart soft, even when you're just so very weary of fighting.
