My sister just posted this picture of fresh limes from her kitchen. Nothing special here, you might think — but wait. She picked them in her backyard. After living her entire life in New England, she and her husband just moved to Florida where they’re immersing themselves in their new climate and culture. I can tell from her Facebook posts that she’s having fun figuring out what’s great about this new world of theirs.
There’s magic in looking at your surroundings with curiosity and appreciation. It’s so easy to take what we have for granted and forget that there are things all around us that were once new and exciting. I wonder how many people live in my sister’s neighbourhood without ever seeing the limes.
Do you have invisible limes in your backyard?
