The inner child within me takes much pleasure in the simple things that surround us daily. Now I have a full time job and other obligations that keep my attention but nothing brings me joy like nature and being outdoors. I have a mind for details so I can spend lots of time looking at flowers or leaves, even blades of grass.
This afternoon I followed a deer trail and found where a deer had been laying next to a tree on a hillside. I was so tickled to sit down in this patch of grass and look around to see the same beauty as a deer had taken in earlier. It was incredibly peaceful. I could understand why this would be a good spot to lay in the sun and absorb for a while. I decided to get out my journal and write about this moment. Some things are worth remembering and so many of those are the moments that pass you by without notice.
