The evening sun is lowering to meet the western horizon. Its light adds a glimmer to the oak leaves outside my window. The rays warm my skin through the glass. It is hot but the sticky humid air of recent days is absent today bringing relief. The pale blue sky appears soft and calm fading to white where it kisses the treetops.
I pull the window open to feel the soft breeze on my warmed skin. The soft sound of voices drifts along the air currents from distant neighbors. The laughter of children playing summer games floats by mingling with the other sounds in the air.
I couldn’t have planned a more peacefully blissful evening. Sometime we just need to stop for a minute and drink in our surroundings. Too many times we give up a single precious moment of pure happiness by letting these moments slip by without noticing. I am overjoyed I noticed today.
Did you notice today?
