DOUBLE BUBBLE – Finding the Miraculous in the Mundane

Brushing my teeth this morning. Saw something out of the corner of my eye, a tiny bubble about the size of a BB. Filled with the warmth of my breath, it hovered next to my face for a eight or ten seconds before cooling, falling. Then it popped, and inside was a second precious bubble half the size.
Sometimes there's joy to be found in the most mundane of tasks...if you're ready to see it.

Jeffery, I loved reading this. It made me think about how rushed people are and how they miss the magical things in life that are there to be noticed but are sadly never seen. Thank you for inspiring us all! :)

Absolutely! I love the little pleasures in life :)

Hi Diana -- Thanks so much for stopping by here at One Man's Wonder! As you demonstrate so well at your Tinder Forest School blog, it's less about going out and finding wonder than about opening little doors and letting it find you. In this case, just taking a moment to notice something many might find inconsequential.
