The Art of Abundance

I love the book The Art of Abundance by Candy Paull. She describes it has a simple guide to discovering life's treasures. Here are a few:

Abundance is.... a vegetable stand at harvest time.
Abundance is... a tender touch where it hurts.
Abundance is... starlight after a storm.
Abundance is... a bag of groceries.
Abundance is... the aroma of his aftershave.
Abundance is... a field of ripe corn.
Abundance is... having enough to share.
Abundance is... reading Peter Rabbit to a child.

One of my own:
Abundance is... my son saying, "thank you, mama".

Happiness is neither within us only, or without us; it is the union of ourselves with God. -Blaise Pascal
