During the month of November, I am writing about what I am grateful for. Today, I’m talking about what I’m thankful for in nature.
As I get older, I take the time to look closely at the little things in nature. I watch and listen to the sights and sounds that nature provides. Sitting outside and taking it all in is one of my favorite things to do. It doesn’t sound terribly exciting, I know. However, since diagnosed with Hashi’s, I take the time to enjoy the little things in life.
We have wind chimes hanging on one of the eaves of our home. The sound is very soothing when I’m sitting outside and I can also enjoy them when I’m sitting in my office studio.
We have quite a bit of wildlife that spends time in our yard. In addition to the usual birds, squirrels, and deer, we have heron’s, turkeys, and ducks. We’ve also seen a black squirrel that spends time in the oak tree in our front yard. Red squirrels are commonplace here, but not the black squirrels. I am thankful that there are so many things in nature to enjoy.
Until next time,
