Day 21, January 21

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.
