I opened my front door this morning and looked out; what a view!
The cool and very green grass at my feet; the wonderful maple tree Li’l Homey sits under; the uneaten pasture next door; my chair just waiting for me to get my book and have a seat; Mt. Hood in the distance hidden by its own bank of clouds; the sun already so bright it washes out the colors; a tiny patch of blue peeking through the clouds.
It’s quiet, except for a bunch of birds greeting the day, and an occasional car driving by on the nearby road.
It’s still cool, only 63 degrees. There’s a light layer of clouds, adding the humidity I feel in the air. Dinah pops out of the trailer door to roll in the grass.
I made a cup of tea and opened my email. This “quote of the day” met me:
“If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it’s the only tool you would ever need to predominately hook you up with who you really are. That’s all you’d need.” — Abraham, 2002
Ah, yes. Appreciation. How I appreciate the view this morning!
It’s a great way to start the day. Thank you for sharing it with me!
