Being Present To The Moment

"Miracles are constantly occuring around us. The issue is not these miracles are absent. The issue is that often WE are absent. We are standing on a hill of diamonds, and we are looking for the gold mine beyond the next ridge. Thank goodness I have walked in circles long enough to wear the soles of my shoes so thin that the diamonds on which I stand can now get my attention".


Ring a bell??  I LOVED this when I read it - I have A LOT of diamonds in my life and I have adopted this term with my family. We remind each other to think about our diamonds when we are not feeling greatful. ;)
