It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

I stepped outside this morning to take a pic of the hillside beyond our backyard. The highway is to the left of the shot, farther back. We are so fortunate to live where we do. I forget sometimes just how lucky and am reminded when I think to step outside and go all the way to the back of our property. And that is the key: remembering to do things. Keeping the "everydayness" of the every day in the front of your mind can be very hard. So many other things clamor for attention. I hope it doesn't sound trite to suggest that these little moments of awareness add up to a larger bit of overall happiness to reflect upon when times are not great or easy. It's like paying into a savings account on a regular basis. Before you know it, there is a pile of goodness to draw on. So, step outside today if you can and take a look around. You may just be surprised at what you see. Libby
