Oh these days!

These glorious days!

I still can’t get use to them!

La Jolla

These are the days that I would dream about when I was sitting in my cubicle at my desk.

Looking out the window and just longing to be…out…there!

Out where my feet could be free. Out where I could enjoy the warmth of the sun on my back.  But more importantly, out where I could just kick back with my very best friend.

Yep! These are some glorious days! The days that are no longer a dream, but my reality.

This is my amazing life!

 

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts behind a door

3 gifts behind a door

1.  I’m thankful for this wonderful oasis that greets me when I open the door to my backyard.

my secret garden

2. And when I step out my front door, get in my car and drive just about 20 minutes west of my house, I’m greeted by this glorious sight!

I’m so thankful for this breathtaking view.  It just never gets old, no matter how many times I see it.

3. I’m thankful for this door – the door to the library – any library! A door that opens up to endless adventures, information, opportunity and mystery.

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for today.

It’s important to stop…take a moment…and reflect on the good things in life.

Will you join me in counting the blessings on your journey through life?

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts summer

For most of the world, Summer is winding down and transitioning to Fall.  For those of us fortunate enough to live in Southern California, Summer will still be around for a few more weeks!

So my 3 gifts of summer are….

1.  The ocean and the beach, bring sweet relief in the heat of summer.

2.  The flowers of summer, bloom bright and beautiful!

3. The fun and the folly of kids playing in the sun.

“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” 
L.M. Montgomery

I must agree with her, it has been a summer to remember, full of so many wonderful moments to be thankful for! These are just a few of a multitude of a heart full of good things!

What are you thankful for?

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?
