Yesterday in church a woman shared ... she had been visiting a location in Arizona and was told one thing that was a must to see was the sunset at a certain location. They planned their day around this event and when they arrived the area was packed with people also visiting to see the sunset. She said the sunset was beautiful but realized that the sunset outside her own window in Bountiful, Utah is as beautiful. She indicated she was often too busy to stop and enjoy that beauty in her own front yard. Often when someone comes to our home to visit if they are at that time of day and looking to the west, they will comment on the beauty of our sunset. I thought it was a good message to remember to stop and enjoy the beauty right here amongst us.
My friend and I ran a 5K this morning. It was a beautiful morning. It was raining. We were the only ones on the road and she said to our right at one point was a deer just sitting there. Beautiful right here.
Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.
