All the rushing of those around me leaves me wondering

How many blessings do they witness in their days 

Do they notice the miracles in each day

A clear blue sky a fluffy snow laden cloud floating  by

Can they hear that different song  of a bird or

The whispering wind

Do they hesitate to watch a squirrel  in a tree

I find many times if life  pressures me

I  can stop the pressure

I stop to enjoy  that which  is around me

The birds not usually around in the spring and summer

The change in mother earth 

Some trees beautiful and green year around

Giving shelter to  creatures large and small

The new fawns  have grown strong and healthy

And I find peace

Peace in a world that  seems to move constantly

Peace in the fact  mother earth is still caring for

that which is rooted deeply inside her

That shelters and protects all Gods Creatures large and small

At peace with myself knowing I have done my best

To protect her and  all she does unseen by many

Thank you for your Very kind response .. I love what surrounds me and I will again plant a Christmas tree this year.. my home is surrounded by trees and bushes planted in Memory of those who are no longer with us Now I have a place where I have deer and other wildlife they protect my hummingbirds and many more..One neighbor told me to pull up a Morning Glory because it would take over everything.. Hasn[t happened but I told her I couldn't it was a reminder to look up and be thankful for all my blessings .. Have a wonderful Christmas Val and again Thank You

So lovely!

I always take time to enjoy the little beauty around me wherever I am; like the little dandelion flower growing in the most unusual of places like the center of a sidewalk; or the grasses that seem to want to grow along the edge of a dirt path where nothing else seems to grow. The songs of the birds calling to each other in the trees as they settle in the branches for the night.

So much beauty surrounds us.

Birthdays ~Happy Birthday from Warrior Nation!

For the Warriors who fight and Die...

so the rest of us may fight to Live.
