Today I am feeling grateful for a beautiful day with not a thing on our to do list but to live for the day. The four of us have not had a lot of down time to just hang out together for a really long time so there was no complaining when we packed up the car and headed for the country.
We were grateful the clouds only threatened and all rain stayed clear.
We were grateful for rain boots so we could stomp around the lake and keep up with the boys.
So grateful for this boy and his love for the outdoors. I hope his love for fishing and hunting will always be a refuge for him as he gets older and is needing to destress or reconnect with God.
I am grateful that his dad has taken such great care to teach him how to respect nature and enjoy it to the fullest.
I’m grateful that this girl has a daddy that thinks she hung the moon and is so excited when she shows an interest in fishing. Today she said “I’m just so happy they actually asked us to join them”.
I love that big fish eating grin!
We are so grateful to have this guy bait our hooks and take the fishies off the hook for us even though we are NOT those kind of girly girls and could totally do it ourselves.
As easy as it is to be over the rain after the days on end we have had, it’s hard not to be grateful for the beauty the rain has brought. The colors of the flowers and the grass seem so much more vibrant than they have in awhile.
I love taking photos but have not really had the opportunity to just get out and shoot in awhile so I am feeling grateful for the time I had to stomp around and shoot today.
This water filled lily pad was my favorite nature shot today.
This was Dutch Buddy’s first trip to the lake and he was not afraid to jump in and do some exploring.
So grateful for this little stinker and the joy he has brought to my life!
Grateful for the afternoon sunshine and for this girl that brings so much sunshine to our lives every single day.
Grateful for this day away from the crazy life we lead sometimes. It was quiet and peaceful and just what we needed.
