A friend sent the following to me:
"I was at McDonald's for breakfast one morning and invited a lady about my age to
join me. after we talked for a while, I noticed a leafless tree with light bark
against the back stop of beautiful dark evergreens. I commented to her how
beautiful the tree looked. So symmetrical and perfect. I was filled with joy at
the sight as I often am when I take time to just stare at nature. Her comment to
me was ‘you have such a positive outlook on life.’ I realized that she, like
many of us fail to just stare at the beauty of nature and feel the joy. We have
awesome sunsets. I am so uplifted whenever I stare at those too."
Joy for the day: finding beauty in nature.
