Chasin' Waterfalls

Hiking at Cloudland Canyon was so much fun! Winston did great and was wanting to run in the water, and run all over the large rocks! He is definitely a mountain dog. He LOVES it. We camped out the night before, where I hardly slept because I am terrified of bears after our last camping adventure, where bears were in out campsite! But dont you worry, this time I took correct precautions and put our food in a bear bag 100 feet away from our tent.  We had never been here before and were amazed when we came to the first waterfall. It is in a little nook, and all of the sudden it opens up into this beautiful waterfall that is rushing into a calm pool. There were so many more waterfalls as we kept hiking that we came to, and I was just amazed at its beauty! I am constantly in awe of this beautiful world and the creation that it is! 

Hawaii spoiled me for beauty in nature- It is the prettiest place on the planet, but it is amazing how beautiful the entire world is, there is awe inspiring beauty in every country, state, nook, and cranny. I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful world! 

My thoughts
I think it is so easy to get stuck in a rut, and be blind to the beauty that surrounds us each day. I know whenever I remember to stop and recognize the small things that make my day beautiful, I have better days. It is amazing how much beauty is really in our everyday lives, we do not have to travel far to see the beauty in a child's laughter, or the beauty in a simple act of kindness. We are lucky people- the trick is just remembering that we are! :)

"Let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see" 


Peace and Blessings
