inspiration exists

Early morning cups of coffee
Orange and yellow crispy leaves, falling lazily from the trees
Real life stories of my family and friends
Bright flowers in window boxes
Worn down, chipped paint
Wrinkles on beautiful faces
Afternoon walks
Yellow, dog eared pages in my favorite books
Friends who hug you and understand how you feel
Late night drives 
Scripture that speaks 
My baby brother with his smile and laugh
Crystal blue skies
Stormy grey skies
Strangers in town that have a story to tell
Unexpected happenings
Terrible experiences that turn out for the good
Cooking good food with people you love
Stopping and listening to the world around you
Writing and receiving handwritten letters
The snap of a camera shutter
Sudden phone calls from people who just wanted to say hi
Your grandpa telling you how pretty you look
Photographs of childhoods
Finding old letters in thrift shops and imagining the story around them
Thunder in the daytime
Shadows cast by interesting objects
People who remember my name after meeting for a short time
Blank sheets of paper that both terrify and encourage me
