The gift of reflection

IMAG0265 (2).jpg

This photo was taken about 7 years ago at a simple park on the Potomac River.  It was taken during a time when life was so easy and carefree.  I had just met my soon-to-be husband one month earlier and we were already in love.  We had dreams of what life would be. Reflecting back, we never could have known the ups and downs we would face in our marriage or the changes we would see in the world.  Just like this gorgeous sunset, all we saw in our reflections was beauty.

And that’s how it should be.

There is often so much to reflect back on in life.  Some brings us pain, some hope, some laughter.  But really, it all has one thing in common….beauty.  

You are beautiful.  I am beautiful.  Life is beautiful.  

And all of it…the good, the bad, and the ugly…

is a gift.

 

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is “reflecting”.
