For the Beauty of Beauty

Charlene Costanzo (author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) praises the beauty of nature growing all around us.

“I like to praise and reward loudly…”  – Catherine the Great 

May we be like Catherine the Great today.  Let’s notice things that we appreciate and admire in others and let them know. Big things as well as little things. No holding back. 

Authentic praise is like water for flowers. It helps us to grow and blossom when we give it and when we receive it. 

For the beauty of beauty, 


May your deeds reflect its depth.
