Thought for the Day: Ponder for Just Awhile

As I walked out to leave for work one morning this week, a neighbor was walking by with her dog.  We did our usual smiles and nods before I jumped behind the wheel to take off.
But, as I pulled from the driveway, my eyes became transfixed on the rear view mirror and the morning sky! So, I quickly stopped the car and jumped out with my phone to get these shots.  The neighbor had walked to the opposite side of the street by that time, and looked at me puzzled.
I said, "Wow, look at the sky. I just had to stop and take a picture."

She replied, "Oh my, I walked right past it with my head down.  If it had not been for you, I would have missed it."

Thought for the day:  Take time to stop and look at the beauty that surrounds us. It would be sad to miss out!  It is raining all day where I am, but nice to remember the sky from earlier this week. I think more than ever, technology trains us to look down...so ponder awhile and look up!

Have a fun weekend, everyone!  Take some time to admire all going on around you!

  1. The sunrise is something I always enjoy about my day. I get to work while it is still dark, so I watch for the sun to come up each day outside my office window. When it is raining, I bring up an Outer Banks beach cam & watch that. It has been a favorite way to start my day for a long time. A friend at work does the same and we share it together and do the "ooos and ahhhs"! Love it!

  2. I love this. I am often amazed by the beauty of the sunrise and sunset. Last night, on our way to a concert, my husband and I were talking about how beautiful the night sky was last night. Thank you so much for sharing.

  5. The other night I almost missed the Harvest moon coming up, big and orange. My84 year old mom texted me, my sister and grand daughters to check it out. Although we are scattered 100's of miles from one another we all stopped what we were doing and shared that amazing moment in time.

  8. I have really been enjoying the colorful autumn leaves while I walk my daughter to school. And I make sure to point them out to her as well. I remind her that they will soon be gone! Happy Halloween Pam! I hope the little ones are nearby so you can see them in costume! xx

  9. Beautiful sentiments, this is so true, sometimes we walk through our days without noticing the glory surrounding us!

  12. I'm lucky because I get to see the sunrise every day. After I drop my daughter off at school and head home, the sun is rising right in front of me. It's always a beautiful start to my day.
