Things aren't always what they seam to be.

Madeline was sitting on the couch reading a book when she said Mom look at the dinning room table . I looked and saw a statue of Mary kneeling over baby Jesus. Just as I was thinking where did that come from Madeline said Oh my goodness that so wired. I thought that napkin was Mary standing over the baby Jesus. I was like napkin she said move your head just a bit to the left when I did sure enough I could tell it was just a crumpled napkin. I was kinda bummed when I realized it was just a napkin. It crazy how on minute we see something so beautiful and extraordinary then blinders are put on and what was once extraordinary becomes the ordinary.
I guess we all see things differently at different times in our lives it's up to us is we want to see a beautiful statue of Mary kneeling over baby Jesus or just a crumpled napkin.

It all depends on your vantage point, and sometimes you are in the right spot at the right time to see the secret meaning of something. :)

WOW. I guess that tells us where y'all minds are. How absolutely wonderful to see something so beautiful in what other people would see as useless...

I totally see Mary, too.

My daughter once did a poop that she claims looked like a ballerinas arm.

I prefer to see Mary.

Oh! I l-o-v-e this post! Isn't it so true? I have thought about this so many times!

Thanks for you sweet comments on the blog today! You're so thoughtful! And I LOVE the apron you made for the swap! I didn't sign up for this one... I'm just not sure I would have any time.

Oh my eyes do that all the time to me. Really quite fun and sometimes annoying.

I really liked your view of the napkin. Sometimes a new view brings something cool to see.

Stopping by from SITS.

It's funny how things can appear to be something special for just a minute.

Visiting from SITS. I hope you had a nice Christmas!
