The end result of kindness is that it draws people to you.
            -- Anita Roddick, A Revolution in Kindness, 2003

In all the craziness of the past few days when I was desperately trying to find some peace, something caught my attention.  I was walking around the house with the painter who would be working here and saw something flutter past me.  I found this beauty of a butterfly prancing around in my flower garden.  I kindly told the man I would be back and ran to get my camera.  As I captured a dozen pictures of this butterfly, I noticed the painter standing there wondering why I would bother taking pictures when his time was money.  After a while, I noticed his expressions soften as I talked to him that we all need to notice at times the beauty that is around us.  He proceeded later in the day to talk of my roses that adorned my bushes as he painted away.  I smiled as I remembered our conversation earlier.   This one little butterfly that caught my attention flew by at the right moment.  :)

I like this entry a lot.  Ever read any Richard Bach books?  I think you would like them.  And I always love your photos.  Have you been busy this week?  Just wondering since there hasn't been a post lately. :)
