The power of finding beauty - free gratitude coloring page

I saw this quote on instagram the other day (thanks to the talented @merryletter) and it struck me so forcefully. This is gratitude and abundance - opening our eyes to the beautiful lives we have and the beautiful world around us, finding joy in what we already have and truly seeing the gifts we've been given. What a gift that would be to the people we love and to ourselves! And then this very morning I started the @smallseed daily gratitude devotionals with my kiddos and found this quote: "because the beauties of life are so abundant, sometimes we take them for granted. Our minds have a marvelous capacity to notice the unusual. However, the opposite is true as well: The more often we see the things around us—even the beautiful and wonderful things—the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds—even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. Those who live in thanksgiving daily, however, have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time. " -- Joseph B. Wirthlin
