In my email this morning-
A hail storm broke out in Zagreb today and my friend Maja captured it with her iPhone from her 9th floor office. She was a little bit reluctant to be blogged, but she had this to say about the picture : “It looked so great and it made me so happy that I wanted to share it.”
And it reminded me of the sentence from the film “American Beauty” – “Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.”
I think that quote is a great motto for us to live by. You and your blog do a great job reminding us all of the beauty that surrounds us every moment of every day, so I knew what to do with Maja’s picture right away!
Thank you Maja for sharing your beautiful photograph of the hailstorm from the ninth floor window and thanks Matty, too.
Wonderful comments from Matthew. Thanks, Maja- I enjoyed seeing the contrast among the clouds.
A lovely,interesting post. The photograph is fabulous. Thanks!
An amazing shot indeed and you said it Ruth! We must see the beauty in everything and every day. Thank you for reminding us Maja. 🙂 *big hugs*
As scary as they are, storms can be beautiful – that picture captures it.
Fabulous shot. Yes, there is beauty all around us; we just have to recognise it.
A great shot, Ruth, and that letter your Son wrote the perfect accompaniment.
Great photo, great comment from Matthew..storms can be inspiring. I remember that plastic bag dance from the film he mentioned….
I love this guest post! I agree with Maja, Matty, *and* American Beauty. 🙂
