Gloaming Frost

I took this picture real quick thinking it was an eagle, later as I was looking at it I am pretty sure it’s just a black bird.

Eagle in Flight (or maybe just some blackbird) Still interesting.

My walking companions seem to wonder why I am constantly stopping and bending over something or looking at something really close but they are fine with waiting until I am done.

Patient Dogs (Luke sometimes just waits until I am done taking pictures.)

Some pictures speak peace or closure, either closure of the day or closure of the growing season when all leaves have fallen and the ground starts to have its winter blanket.

This next quote is out of the book The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani, page 422:

“It seemed to Ciro that so much of life was about not holding on, but letting go and in so doing, the beauty of the past and the happiness he felt then came full circle like a band of gold.  The night sky, the cemetery, the memory of places past and the people who had been there to bear witness, provided all the constancy his heart required.  This is what it means to be part of a family.”

I am thankful for my family, the close and the extended.  We are there for each other through the good and the hard, the sweet and the bitter, the complicated and the simple.  We may not alway be able to fix each other’s problems but we can listen to a loved ones troubles and help them share the burden.  At times, when the unexplainable or the unwanted, or unacceptable things happen, we can lessen the pain. We can also lift one another up and double the joy when we share the blessings and the successes.  They are not always easy, impossible to be perfect, but family relations bring so much into our lives. At this time of year may you find yourself surrounded by loved ones – even if it’s on social media!!!

Almost Christmas!

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 41 years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, all the great people who bless my life, and for the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us. Oh! I am grateful for my two doggies too!!!
