unexpected surprises

wednesday my grandson & i
went over to my eldest daughter and
younger grandson's house...
a play date for the two cousins

much fun was had;
there was wading pools to
splash in.
bicycles to ride.
playhouses to play in.
plants to water.
and last but, not least
mules & horses to feed.

as my daughter was watering
her hanging baskets she said,
"mom you have to see this."
inside one of her baskets was
a perfectly formed nest and inside
that nest were four little eggs...

then she said, "come here i want
to show you & jackson another nest"
over in one of her shrubs...
a robin had made herself
a nice little nest

how sweet are these
little perfect nests?

the boys fed her mule and horses
carrots and just had a great time
playing together-

as we pulled out of her driveway
i looked ahead of me;
in the distance all snow covered
and gorgeous was mt. baker

oh yes, life is sweet

days like these remind me
just how lovely and beautiful
life is-

simple things in life
are wonderful and life is good.

we only need to take the time to
see beautiful...

because yes, it is there
for us all!

Hi Melody-mae! You are so right, there is so much beauty all around us, if only we would just stop and look. What is it they say - "stop to smell the roses?" That is certainly what I do, especially now that I am recuperating. You will know more than most that when you have been ill, you certainly do look at life in a different way. Me? I'm just grateful to be here to see the beauty of all His creation!

I'm trying my best to see the beauty in a sweltering day like today- I told myself that I just had to start embracing every day regardless of circumstances or weather or mood or whatever. I think I'm learning some of this from reading your blog!

My 7 year old son said today, "Mommy, I'm really happy with the world I live in." Makes me think I'm doing a good job! :-)
