It’s Vacation Time!!! We came up to the mountains for a week of fun with the kids, and arrived yesterday. This morning I woke up and I was not exactly in the best mood from two days of packing, traveling, nonsense, and fighting from the kids, but I was stunned at how quickly my cranky “don’t talk to me” irritable mood changed.
In an attempt to soften the blow of such a terrible mood, I drew the curtain to our balcony open to take in the view. For a moment, I stood there in awe. It was truly magnificently breathtaking; when I looked over at the mountain tops gently being kissed by the most beautiful rays of sunshine peeking through the gray clouds.
I felt an incredible peace come over me as I stepped out onto the balcony taking in the fresh air, watching the deer walk by, and listening to the nothingness around me. It was serenity, it was peaceful, it was nature’s beauty.
