Fresh Ripe Red Tomatoes

Beauty can be found in unexpected places, when you take the time to stop for a minute and look. Recently I bought some Campari tomatoes to make homemade stewed tomatoes. As I was washing them, I stopped and noticed the perfect little water droplets against the red skin of the tomatoes.

I don't generally think that tomatoes are beautiful. To me they are just a tasty fruit (or vegetable, however you classify them). But when I looked at the tomatoes with the sunlight coming in my kitchen window and the water on them, my eyes were opened to the simple beauty that was right in front of me.

So take a moment in your day to pause and look at the simple beauty in an everyday moment.

You can find the recipe for homemade stewed tomatoes on Home Crafts by Ali, one of my other blogs.
