Lookin' At Life

As Kit Kat and I pondered life while in the great outdoors yesterday, I came to a realization. 

My life is extraordinary. 
I enjoy a pretty and productive garden with flowers, fruit, and vegetables.

I have the advantage of a lake which provides me with a sense of calm and contentment.

I take delight, am amazed, and very appreciative of the beauty around me.

I am surrounded by the wonderful wildlife. This one I call Gertrude. 

And my buddies (this is Dale) provide much needed companionship as I go about my day.

Yep, everyday here at the homestead is extraordinary and I am thankful for it.

Hope you have an extraordinary weekend,

You are so right. Nothing else would matter without peace in our own little corner of the world.

We should all stop and count our blessings. It looks like you've found your little slice of heaven.

Sounds like a bed and breakfast I might like to stay at ;)
Life is good when we stop and smell the roses, I just have to keep reminding myself to do that.

Hi! Cindy,

You are truly blessed! Being still for a moment allows us to reflect on how grateful we are for these "life" gifts. These priceless moments in time.

I too, am grateful & thankful for everything I have(no matter what).

Isn't it beautiful to see & embrace that stillness? We are all blessed :o)

Enjoy! a serene weekend.

Blessings & Hugs,

Your surroundings are wonderful. I live in the city, but still have one indoor cat, three feral outdoor cats we feed, and lots of wildlife and birds that come up to share the cat food. :)
