Never Stop Adventuring

A few evenings ago my sister-in-law and I decided to head high for a little adventure. Having her around more has been a very welcome benefit of the government furlough.  The two of us have a very easy relationship.  Honest, fun and very lighthearted.  The type of friendship that I subscribe to.  As we packed the van with the few essentials that we would need for an overnight trip, I couldn’t help but feel extraordinarily grateful for the warmness and goodness that true friends and family bring to my life.  Those blessings coupled with a setting with truly unrivaled natural beauty, helps me realize just how fortunate this little life of mine is.

my husband

family

true friends

mountains

the goodness and wholeness of blue

the effervescent river

river rocks

orchard apples

ripe tomatoes

great books

nature poetry

garden beets

simple truths

knowing goodness always triumphs over evil

nurturing a kind heart

speaking the language of truth

and, knowing a mountain adventure cures almost anything

  1. In a time of feeling quite pummeled, writing out, speaking out loud, my own list of gratitudes is a delightful way to put things in perspective. Beauty here, kindness there, a dash of hope and a heap of love.
    Here’s to keepin’ it real.
