It is PERFECT.
It encompasses the way I have been trying to live my life:
-Slowing down and learning life’s little lessons in the small things.
Seeing God’s hand in everything.
Feeling gratitude for the world around me. Down to the tiniest details.

The story of how it was meant to be mine:
I am an aide for a Waldorf Kindergarten. The teacher, Mrs Jo is a master teacher who is ~living her purpose~ of shaping young children’s lives through whole-child education.
I saw this book laying on a table in our room, opened it up and was blown away at the beauty of the illustrations and scientific content available to a reader - young or old who might be interested in learning about nature and the workings of the world.
Immediately, I knew I HAD to own this book. I mentioned to Mrs Jo in passing, “I’m going to to take a picture of this book’s cover. I’ve got to buy it.”
She responded “Oh! I have two copies! Please take one of mine! I bought it and then someone gave one to me as a gift.”
And then with a twinkle in her eye, “I thought of you when I bought it”
I responded, “Ha ha 😄 before you knew me”
But you know what? That’s how God works things like this out!
What if she really was #inspired to buy it for that very moment of being able to place such a gift into my hands?
Thank you Jo and thank you Rachel Williams and Freya Hartas for this work of art that speaks to my soul!
