This morning I was having my quiet time and wondering a little bit if I’m in the right place. I’d been looking at photos from my time in Germany last night, and remembering what a boost I’d get from visiting castles. Maybe I should try to go back? But when I was there before, I had a husband and two sons to do the castling with. People really make all the difference.
And here I have a super meaningful job and wonderful connections with people at church. And I was thinking about lots of good things in my life right now, while staring out the window down at my lake — when the great blue heron walked right through my view.
He quickly went behind grasses, so I couldn’t get a picture of him from my house, but you can be sure I brought my camera when I went for my walk later. And yes, I got my heron fix!
I laugh about the idea of a heron fix, but I have to admit that regularly seeing my friendly neighborhood great blue heron never fails to remind me that I have a beautiful life, here and now.
