Our daughter gave me a lovely calendar for Christmas. It’s called “Simplicity,” and features photographs by Deborah DeWit, who also collected wonderful quotes for each day.
Yesterday’s entry struck a chord:

“There is enchantment right in front of you, waiting for you to notice.” 
                                                                    — Janet Luhrs

Enchantment can so easily be missed.
On many a winter’s night I reluctantly throw a coat on to take our dog out for that final yard visit before bed. It’s cold, I’m tired, and I’m not thinking “enchantment.”
Tonight, however, I looked up.
Oh, the simple beauty of a starlit sky, just waiting to be noticed.
Enchantment, found, with the help of a four-legged friend.
