Thankful Thursday: A gift in sky, water, and memory

A gift in sky, water, and memory:

1. I’m so thankful for the gift of the clouds in the sky! I love a clear blue sky, but those clouds…they always seem to capture my attention. I love the different shapes and textures, colors and designs, it truly is art in motion.

2. Another mesmerizing view…the big blue ocean. There are many moments when I find myself staring out onto this beautiful body of water, and I think to myself…I live here!

Yes! I am very thankful for this.

3. A moment I will never forget, turned into a memory I will always treasure. The beauty and the bliss of sitting at The Beach Bar in Guam, just watching the waves go by. I am very thankful for the opportunity to visit this amazing place, and certainly wouldn’t mind going back to this view.

These are just a few of the things that I am so very thankful for today.  There is always, always something to be thankful for…just take a moment and look around you, you’ll find it!

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

Weekly photo challenge: from above

I’m so glad I was taking the picture from above this car, instead of in it!

Although, the way they were packed in there…I don’t think I would have fit, even if I wanted to.

They were packed in pretty tight!

We had to check it out.  This amazing place called Two Lovers Point in Guam.

And he is the love of my life.

Thankfully, we didn’t feel the need to jump from the cliff, as described of the two lovers in the legend of Two Lovers Point. 🙂

My 2012 in pictures.  A year full of new places and adventures!  I am so blessed by the love and care of a wonderful husband, and an amazing family.   I am looking forward to 2013, with hope in my heart, and a sincere desire to find the bright spot in each new day.

once in a lifetime

It probably was a once in a lifetime opportunity.  The opportunity to go to the island of Guam.

Rarely, if ever, do you see Guam listed in one of the top ten destination places for a vacation, however, it might just be life as it was meant to be.

Palm trees swaying in the breeze, white sand beaches and crystal clear water.

It was an opportunity that I really enjoyed! I explored and took in the solitude and beauty of nature.  I relaxed, observed, and walked a lot. Oh, and apparently Guam is a great place to get married!   I witnessed a wedding on the beach almost every day that I was there!

But for now…it’s only in my mind!  In my mind, and in my memory.

"the beach" - Guam

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, I would recommend going to Guam.  It’s beautiful, and there isn’t a lot to do but just sit back, and relax by the beach.

If you do happen to have the opportunity to go to Guam, check out “The Beach” while you are there!   I hear it gets a little rowdy at night, but during the day, this is island time at it’s best!  The perfect place for a nice cool drink with an amazing view!
