It’s a Beautiful Morning to be Alive

On Monday morning, I came down to my car and was happy to see a deep blue sky. It was a beautiful morning to be alive. I know that every morning I should be thankful for life, but some days are just extra special with the beauty of nature. I grabbed my phone and took several photos.

To end this short post, I’ll share a bouquet of flowers. Flowers make everything better.

Yesterday , Wednesday, was a day of soft rain. It was a good day to stay in and get cozy. I know some of you have asked how I am doing. Well the doctor’s prescriptions are working well. I having less pain each day. The medication makes me sleepy, but I don’t mind a little nap.

I’m hoping to continue improving for the next week as my nephew and his wife are coming to visit that weekend. I’ve shared photos from James and his wife Heather previously. Remember her beautiful garden up in Michigan? Their travels to Washington D.C. or out west?

Thanks for the visit. I hope you have beautiful skies this weekend.

  6. The beauty of the sun coming up in the morning, the little rays of light shining over the trees. The sky a spectacular mix of oranges and pinks and purples. The relaxing calm of just seeing the sunrise is incredible. That is what I saw this morning as I glanced out the window for just a moment. I did somewhat of a double take as I did not expect to be in such awe of the morning sky. That beauty is all around us… we need only to look.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
