at the top

standing at the top
looking down
see the beauty & wonder
of it all

trying to hold on
to remember
every moment, each precious moment

days, months & years
roll into one
we need to not
take it all
for granted

to be thankful
every day
for the people
in our lives

holding my breath
standing at the top
looking down

may I never forget
never forget to...
be thankful

it is beautiful
at the top
life is simply beautiful

Thanks for reminding us not to take life for granted. I often find myself wishing several days, weeks and months of my life away because I'm looking forward to getting to the "good stuff." I guess our todays are the "good stuff." And I suppose I need to learn to find the extraordinary in the ordinary.

*sigh* Maybe one day I'll get it right.

This reminds me to go add some more to my grateful list.

Your blog is very uplifting. I am new to blogging but have been craving to do it for a few years now. I am adding you to those I follow so I can come back and read more later.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads - my husband has that saying in a frame somewhere. Thanks for reminding us that life IS beautiful : D

Thanks too for the follow at WynnnieBee. I'm following you back And if it's OK taking back with me the Audrey Hepburn quote you have posted in your sidebar. Today is one of those days - lots of trails - well one big one LOL - needing some inspiration - maybe someone else does too - will pass this along : D

Hugs - Bev
