My hubby was cleaning up an area at the cottage a couple of weeks ago and when he showed me his work, thinking I would be impressed, he was surprised when I got upset! He had cleaned up alright. He had taken out some rhubarb that had magically appeared there the prior year. I assumed that a bird or the wind had graciously delivered the seeds to this new spot and was delighted that I now had rhubarb at the camp, but not anymore after his clean up job. 😦
Anyhow, I got over it, but I was so excited to discover this little gift when I looked this weekend! I declared “Thank you Universe!”. I was so happy to see this little rhubarb plant on this large patch of earth. There it was standing all by itself presenting itself as a gracious gift to us!! I was delighted and my hubby of course, felt much better then as he was off the hook. 🙂
Life is full of gifts if we take the time to appreciate them. I look at this rhubarb plant and think of all the nourishment and pleasure it can provide.
I hope you enjoy finding the gifts that are waiting for you and that you celebrate in them!
