BIG GIRL PANTIES

jennysidebar_button_SAT-2[1]

Jenny’s prompt for Saturday Centus this week is, “The leaves crunched under my boots until they didn’t.”  I love that sentence, Jenny. 

FINDING BEAUTY

Susie said, “put on your big girl panties”  I needed my best friend to comfort, not chide me.

I stormed out of the house and stomped around in the leaves, mumbling curses under my breath.

Thinking I heard a noise, I stopped and heard the beautiful song of a bird.  I looked down and saw crumbled pieces of leaves  surrounded by colorful whole leaves.  I had so mangled the leaves that they no longer crunched when I walked. The leaves crunched under my boots until they didn’t.  In the silence of destroyed leaves, I heard the bird.   

Susie was right.  There was beauty everywhere outside the path of anger.

“put on your big girl panties” -- that expression always sound silly to me but nice take on the prompt. I agreed that sometimes just watching nature has a calming effect.

hope you have a great day.

Oh Miss Laurie.

Don't we hate it when someone speaks the truth to us?

Especially when we just don't have it in us to hear it?

Misery does not always give us clear vision to our surroundings.
