Table for one!

The other day I lunched outside...
at our little bistro table on the patio...

I had just a simple lunch-
a sandwich and a few fresh strawberries.

I set the table with a cloth I love...
cut a few roses...
and even tied my napkin with a ribbon...

as I sat enjoying the sounds of the waterfall splashing
into the pool and the birds singing...
I thought- about nothing really...
just a few daydreams here and there...
it seemed that my simple lunch became so much more...
a gift- to myself...
a quiet moment...a time to be still...
a time to catch my breath and count my Blessings...

from such a simple moment came such a glorious time!
all at a "table for one"!

Have a lovely day!
Many Blessings!
