Two days ago I was walking my dog on one of our usual routes. We were about half a block away from a yard that has an apple tree that spreads out over the sidewalk. I wondered what those apples tasted like. There are always apples on the ground but are well past their eating time and I didn't want to pull an apple off of a stranger's tree. I let the thought go and continued on. Just as I got under the tree three apples fell to the ground right in front of me. An offering from the universe! With the first bite of the crisp, sun warmed apple came memories of being a kid eating sour/sweet apples right off the tree. I ate the whole apple and tossed the core into some tall weeds for the animals and insects to feast on. The event reminded me of a quote...
Listen to me.
For one moment quit being sad.
Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you.
