Good morning, everyone! Sorry this post didn't get up on time. I was in the mountains on a road trip with friends and I just totally forgot what day it was. But late or not, it's still a good time to look back over our week to find some blessings to be grateful for, right? So here we go. Please join in.
~friends~ I am very grateful to have some good friends in my life. Not only friends to do fun things, but friends who share the hard, nitty gritty of life. Having a being a friend like that takes work, time and investment and I am very grateful for the few I have like that.
~ good books ~ I am grateful for books to begin with because we are so privileged in the country to have such unlimited access to reading material but also for those authors who take hard subjects and build stories around them that capture my heart and make me think and reflect where my own heart is. I read such a one this week and haven't been able to pick up another for a couple days as the story keeps coming back to mind.
~ road trips ~ yesterday we went with some good friends and took one of my favorite day trips to the Going on the Sun road and across Logan's Pass in Glacier National Park. It is absolutely breath taking and I highly recommend it if you are able. The many, many vista pull offs and views and the walking and hiking trails can keep one busy for days. We find something new everytime we go. One must bring along nerves of steel though as the drive on the narrow roads right along the side of the mountains is not for the faint of heart. Especially when you are on the side of road that drops off with nothing but a foot and half stone wall keeping you from the edge of the cliff. But oh so worth it.
In the picture above you can see the line of the road above my shoulder leading into a little black hole which is a tunnel and in the other picture it is the horizontal line etched across the green covered mountain to the right.
~ cameras ~ and of course I am most grateful for cameras to capture special days and moments, especially cameras that you can fit into a pocket. I only took my phone for these pictures because I don't want to lug my big camera around when I'm with other people. And yet I still got wonderful shots to remember the day.
What are you thankful for from the last week?
