Unexpected Gifts

It’s hard to think it’s the second day of August; July flew by as fast as June did.

Last Saturday J and I went to Minnesota. We gathered with his folks, siblings and a few Aunts and Uncles for trip to the lake. I will be sharing more details and pictures on Tuesday’s post. As for now, it’s back to the hay fields.

It’s really nice to get of the ranch for a few days. We enjoyed seeing different country, spending time with family and relaxing. On the way home we made a spontaneous stop to look at a farm truck and got to spend the night at Mike and KJ’s house.

I’m a homebody and was glad to get back, sleep in my own bed and do chores. Molly was really excited to see us.

Remember to look for the unexpected gifts in life. Experienced personally or witnessed from afar, they are all around you. A smile, a comfortable pause in a conversation, the way a child laughs or a loving glance between two people. They are to remind you that your existence here on Earth is full of miracles.

    Love your quote.
    I too am a homebody. I like going on a mini vaca or road trip, but it’s so nice to be home.

    I have tried to make it a point to appreciate those little gifts all around us. I savor my mornings on the porch with a cup of coffee listening to the bees and smelling the flowers. Time with family is so important. I always enjoy seeing the Fisher Price farms of Minnesota. Sometimes I would like to live there, but I think it is a bit crowded. Glad you enjoyed your trip.

    What pretty flowers! Glad you got to take a trip. It’s always fun to get away for a bit.

  4. I’m a homebody too, and always love to get back home and settled in, safe and sound. I’m glad you had a nice trip.

  5. I too am a home body. It’s good to get away but I am always ready to get back the second I leave.

    Gifts really are everywhere…. you are definitely a soul that recognizes those special gifts in front of us 🙂
