Life is Amazing





These photos are from my walks with Bella, sometimes we go to the forest, sometimes the desert and sometimes we walk by my house which is where I took these pictures. In the last photo if you look hard you will see a hawk, he is also more easily spotted in the other photo. He is almost aways there and now there are no more leaves so he really stands out. I love him.
I am showing you these photos because these are some of the things that bring me joy. Yesterday, I realized I have been very sad for the last couple months after my mom passed. Then looking around my yard I saw a bunch of birds having a bath party in the bird bath, it made me think about what makes life worth all the pain, that one image that I got to enjoy for about 5 minutes makes it all worth it. Even if that is all I ever got to witness, it would be enough, but we are so lucky, we get to see miracles like that on a daily basis if we are aware.  After the birds flew away I stayed watching the yard and then these amazing clouds came by and the sun started to go down.  There is something special about the light in New Mexico and the way it filtered through the clouds and trees was another miracle and if that were not enough the wind came up and started to blow all the last leaves from the trees, it was amazing.
Life is amazing.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
XOXO

Hi Annie,

I was a child the last time I was in NM, but your photos always have that golden, ethereal light and I am glad that you took the time to relax and enjoy it and let it soak in. Sometimes it is the small things that brighten our day. Sometimes for me it is that hot shower in the morning or the cats laying in the sun in the afternoon. I, too, get down, but never let it last for too long, nor do I look through rose colored glasses, but hope for the best...

Beautiful Autummn colours. Thank you for sharing. I'm glad Autumn is uplifting you. When we were in Eastney I woke to the same sort of bird party with starlings. Amazing isn't it!

Having raptors in the trees close to the house always lifts my spirits. Glad the hawk is keeping you company.
Oh and Bella is looking so well!

Life is pretty darn amazing. Do you suppose that when we have a loss, somehow it focuses our filter? Ratchets things down so we can see and appreciate anew? I'm watching two blue jays eat sunflower seeds. It's a pretty amazing show. :) xox!

Annie said...

Robyn, Love the raptors, love the Bella.xoxo

Pam, I think that when we have a loss, and a big loss, it cracks us open, our shell is gone and we can see more clearly. xoxo
