Look for the Tranquil Places Just at Hand

Susan at A Southern Daydreamer hosts Outdoor Wednesday. This is my first contribution, but I've seen many beautiful photos posted there. A trip around many of these may offer a few moments of tranquility in the midst of a busy day. Sitting at my kitchen table (sometimes with my laptop)the photo above is the view from my breakfast nook picture window. The setting (there's a park right behind our home) is a most relaxing spot to work and enjoy life at the same time. Blessings like this one, because it is so close at hand, often go unnoticed as we hurry through life. What are the little blessings around you today...the small spots of tranquility in your life...that if taken for granted may be missed so quickly and easily?

Remember to stop by Susan's blog, leave a few comments, and take the time to smell the roses there.

Your first contribution is just perfect. Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday. Your view is one we should shield from those given to envy. It is really beautiful. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

What a lovely view you have and a perfect contribution to Outdoor Wednesday. I've only just begun to participate in this weekly activity ... mainly because it's delightful to see such beauty shared. Thanks for dropping by Small Reflections recently. I'm playing 'catch up' after a much too busy week away from the computer.
Hugs and blessings,
