I had an amazing ride to work this morning! Do you ever feel like your always rushing from here to there and never really take the time out to notice the beauty around you? I always feel rushed and compelled to move quickly from one thing to the next, but this morning was a little different.
I left my house and it looked a bit dreary with some sun trying to peak through, and I thought oh well more rain today...but as I drove into work (I live in the country) the sky was very dark in most places but the ground was sunny and bright, this made the fall colors look so brilliant and beautiful and I couldn't help but to slow down and really look around me! It was beautiful, there were barns with brilliant sun, yet dark skies in the background, the stuff you see in pictures!! I was amazed by how gorgeous everything looked!
Every morning as I drive to work I say a little prayer and this morning was no exception! I had been feeling a little bit down yesterday and missing my mom and my lil dog that I lost, so I asked for some inner peace and comfort and as I drove to work and was noticing all the gorgeous colors and the contrast of the sky and the land. I saw a rainbow, peeking in and out of the dark clouds and I was filled with such a sense of well being and calm, it was amazing.
I slowed right down and took in all the sights, the smells, the quiet and the beauty of the morning. I could not believe all the colors, the darkness, the brilliant sun and the rainbow, it was gorgeous. Too often we let the beauty of nature just pass us by and we miss out on so much by rushing from here to there.
I have struggled terribly since losing my mom and my dog, but this morning for some reason although I still miss them something awful, I just for a few seconds felt an incredible sense of peace and calm. I was in awe of the nature and beauty around me and I had to thank GOD for such a great ride!!
Take a few minutes people and look around you, really look, you will be amazed at what you see!! I was!
