Grateful for the Everyday

Wow, yesterday was very quiet. I mean QUIET. I’m just glad it happened after I had perked my coffee. Yes, the electric went out. For 7 hours. This is the longest we’ve dealt with here. No great tragedy, storm or earthquake, just a gentle rain, that hasn’t stopped yet weakened a tree and brought wires down into the creek.

All day I kept thinking about doing “something” but it seems every something that I thought of required electric, or “it was just to dark in that room”, or sitting on the back porch, which I did a lot of yesterday, in June, dressed like it’s freaking winter out!

This seven hour electric dilemma, which when you really think about it, with all the storms and natural events, like wild fires and volcanoes, really messing up people’s lives around the globe . . .was nothing. However, it made me realize how I take advantage of something as simple as flipping on a light-switch and how that action improves my life. So, this morning while I wait for my coffee to perk, I’m grateful. I’m glad the electric went out to remind me that I’m really a spoiled brat. Today I will be grateful for the everyday things.

Rewarded!!!!!

In yesterday’s blog I wrote about the symphony of birds in the morning. Later in the afternoon, I happened across this baby robin on an old board. He was just looking at me, so vulnerable, so cute! I stood there for a bit, just thankful. I felt like nature was rewarding me for celebrating the birds.

New beginnings

New Life

New day

Such Simplicity in a complex world! I think it is good to step back, look at and appreciate the value and gifts of nature, especially this time of year.

Enjoying the Adventure!
