This morning as I sat outside snuggled up in a blanket drinking my coffee, I reflected on the past week. Had it only been a week since I flew back from Italy! All week long, I have been replaying my time and the many adventures that I had on my trip. It was such a great trip. New memories were made.
It has taken me the week to adjust to the time change! I have been up every morning around 5 a.m. The joy of getting up early is seeing the sunrise. The sunrise has taken my breath away as I look out onto the sky to see the beautiful colors of different blues and the different pinks, as they swirl across the sky. Within seconds, the colors change. I am in awe!
While I was gone, the wetlands got greener and the yellow flowers popped up. It seems like the birds have multiplied, as well. The rabbits definitely have multiplied. The red wing blackbirds have a slurred whistle as the sun rises from the east. The swallows are soaring from one house to the next.
Sometimes we forget about the beauty within our on home. As much as I love to travel, to meet new people and to discover new surroundings, I always remember the words that Dorothy said in "The Wizard of Oz", "There is no place like home."
