I woke up feeling nostalgic today. I'm usually an early-riser who wakes-up with a lot of energy, a happy heart, and...a long to-do list. TODAY, I'm allowing some time to feel grateful.
SO...the sun is shining....I've fed the Deer, the Birds, the Squirrels, and even a baby Frog who hopped-up on the porch...beside me. At last, it's time for my usual glass of Instant Breakfast and
a Granola Bar.
There was a time when I'd have been too-busy to worry about breakfast for my outside friends but no-long are my mornings simply "mornings"! Now...I can't begin any morning
by first... eating my breakfast. I can only eat AFTER I've fed my always-hungry, always-faithful, patiently-waiting....outside friends!
And my world isn't "silent"....anymore. Birds
"sing" their greetings and their thanks; Deer faithfully-join me from their hiding places and.. an occasional Bear might-unexpectedly-make an appearance at the always-crowded--- Breakfast Table!
Everywhere I look...I see and hear squirrels, chipmunks, birds of all sizes and colors and----all I can say is "THANK YOU GOD". You put me exactly-where I'm needed-- welcomed-- and loved.
“ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL....ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL.
ALL THINGS WISE AND WONDERFUL...THE LORD GOD MADE THEM ALL”
My Dear Friends, I urge you to..stop, look, listen ...and enjoy.... the natural beauty around us all. If you live far from nature, make the
effort to visit the countryside or walk to a nearby park but...seriously- search for four-legged friends and the multitude of feathered-friends who "fly through the air with the greatest of ease". Let them put a smile on your face....and a song
in your heart. I promise you will soon "fall in love" all-over-again.
