Regard this turkey hen I encountered in the road. The magnificent wingspan hidden in its waddle and warble.

    The winds of grace are blowing all the time. It is up to us to raise our sails. OH…did I say that already!!! LOL:>)
    When we let go of our expectations or pre-concieved notions of how things “should” be…”could” be…”must” be…etc. etc. etc., we make room in our heart and mind for what actually “is” in the moment. It is the expectations that cause the mind chatter, which uses up a lot of our energy and prevents us from recognizing the beauty and grace all around us. When we raise our sails to the grace and beauty of the moment, there is majic in our world:>)
