Morning surprise

Just after sunrise this morning.
Just after sunrise this morning.

One of the most beneficial and valuable gifts we can give to ourselves in this life: is allowing ourselves to be surprised! It is okay if life surprises you. Its a good thing!

At sunrise.

Upon waking this morning, I looked out the window and what did I see?  Snow!  Beautiful snow!  It was quite unexpected.  Even our weather folks are issuing mea culpas because they didn’t see it coming on any of their models.

I’ll show and tell more later in the week after my guest departs.  Hope you’re having a good Tuesday!

Be good, be kind, be loving.  Just Be.  🙂

  1. The first photo reminds me of my dad taking me, when I was a child, to a small canal walk near where we lived, it was very rural-looking even though it was in a town, and it had the same atmosphere of your photo. Lovely.


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
