Beautiful Scenery!

Oh how I long to go again,
and very soon we will.
We  will be so in awe of all it's beauty.
I wish I could describe the smell of the cold water,
the river running at a fast speed,
the eagles that fly over the water.
the reflections in the water.
The smell of the trees and all its plants and wild flowers,
It is a haven for artists, brilliant artists that capture the surrounding beauty,
The respect and gratitude for the gift we can so often enjoy.
I have felt in my heart for a few weeks the need to go where it is so solitude,
where sun shines and warms you, the snow on the tops of the mountains,
beckoning the rock climbers and hikers, they are so dedicated to thier sport,
So as they go up the mountains with their equipment,
I too have mine,
canvas, paints, brushes,
my cane so I can walk and find the perfect spot to paint.
I am so blessed that I get this opportunity.
It rejeuvenates the spirit,
puts perspective in my life.
The next time hubby has four or five days off,
that is where we are headed,
and it can not be soon enough.
Have a wonderful weekend, may all your dreams come true.
Enjoy your fathers day weekend,
Smile an be kind,
for we don't know what the other person has faced today,
And just a simple smile might make all the difference.

    "for we don't know what the other person has faced today,
    And just a simple smile might make all the difference." I love these words.
    The other day I was a the doctors and in the waiting area a man started talking to me. I am sure the other people waiting felt sorry for me but I listened and chatted to him and gave him my attention. I made him feel important even if only for 5 minutes and I am glad I did as I believe the nice simple things we do for strangers makes a difference.
