This simple picture was taken as I walked out onto my back deck. I chose this picture to remind myself that I don't have to walk far to find beauty. I chose this picture to remind myself that as life changes, and it always does, it is important to continue to see the beauty that is right in front of me. The long walks, the awesome trips, the far away adventues hopefully will still continue to happen. But it is the every day simple and quiet walks, the trips to the local parks, and the fun times with friends at home that should never be taken for granted but should always be cherished. This small but beautiful flower appears every year in my flowerbox without any fanfare or help from me. It is is this type of loyalty that needs to be recognized and appreciated. The once in a life time opportunities should all be enjoyed and celebrated. But so should the simple walk out on the back deck! It is what makes life special not once in awhile but every day!
I would love to know where you walked and what you saw this week.
