Favorite Quote:
Never take life for granted because you never know when it could be taken away from you

Lightening strikes the ground
flashes before my eyes
the flame of the candle
fights against the wind
a single blade of grass
shifts in the afternoon breeze
under and apple tree
a dog sleeps

Nature is all around us
if we only take a moment to see
listen to the crickets and frogs
sing to the midnight sky
a flower opening in the morning sun
the smell of dew on the field

sunrises set the mark of a new day
sunsets let us know we made it through okay
in the night sky, stars give us hope to wish upon
as they watch over us in our sleep

just take a moment
and let go of everything
feel the sun on your skin
and the rain on your lips
close your eyes and be still
