My Goodness

Yesterday I walked out of Costco, a warehouse of consumerism and often frenzied people pushing their grocery carts into each other, and suddenly came awake to the incredible beauty of a late winter/early spring sky.

Clouds…are there any better teachers of what is important in our lives? I just stopped at the exit door and said to the lady who checks the receipts, “Oh my goodness, look at those clouds.” For the moment she stopped being a security check point. She looked at them, instinctively touched my shoulder and said, “So beautiful.”

Yes, so beautiful.
