Simple Beauty {36/365}

Was working around the house this morning when I suddenly spotted a single thin ray of sunshine.  It had fought it's way through the dreary clouds, past a tangle of branches, through the clear pane of a stained glass window and onto a single rose of a bouquet. The sudden spotlight effect stopped me in my tracks.  Before the sun moved or the clouds shifted and the moment was stolen away, I grabbed my camera.

This single instance of simplistic beauty came and went inside a minute, but will stay with me throughout the day.

If you're feeling beaten down, look around you and you'll catch these little moments of encouragement.  They're always just on the edge of your vision, waiting to surprise you.
