Most of us are lucky people. We have homes..enough to eat and families to love us.
I try to lose myself in the little things..the sweet things.
But...I will not stick my head in the sand and pretend all is well.
Our part in all this?
Love one another....
The Coastal Redwoods are getting big. Sometimes I just walk into their branches and stand.
They are soft and cool. Even though one day someone will come along and cut them down...I won't have to see it.
PH and I planted them one day in December 2008. They were only 5' tall or so and now they are taller than the house...MUCH taller.
The grass is trying to fill in again. Lack of water had all but killed it. It's still sparce in places..but reseeding helped and our recent rains. I hoped the rain would be more plentiful...
Some folks are getting way too much...life is so unpredictable.
It brings joy to some and heartbreak to others...
Interesting orbs show up on the lawn..and a really large one in the tree.
Dust? The rains just past. Due drops? Yep..HUGE ones. :) Light refractions of some sort.
Sure. All of the above probaby.
What a bright sunny morning this was. I took these the morning after the rainy day a couple of days ago.
The stones were still wet..I could almost hear things growing..
The grass is getting thicker and greener. There are so many things I would love to do to this little home. This is just a little home..nothing outstanding about it ..except it is SO loved. That always makes things special.
We are all in this together...hang on, dear friends, it's going to be a bumpy year.
This one's going down in the history books...and it's the first time in my long lifetime that it makes me want to cry. If family values are important to you...love...don't hate.
We ARE one!
