I was drinking coffee this morning and being grateful for a restful night when I turned and saw this astounding sight. Now, I’m not going to say that I won’t be traveling around anymore to seek out photos, but honestly, could it get any better than this? When a heron just poses like this it seems like such a blessing!
I am feeling fine this morning and I think I can attribute my Friday night pains to the shoes I wore. When you are old and wearing out the tiniest changes can throw your body out of kilter! The shoes I wore on Friday were new and very flat and I think they put too much strain on my shins. I am very prone to leg cramps and that seemed to make them worse.
And yes, YES, I do know that the Peanut Shoppe is south of Calera, not north as I said in yesterday’s post. Did you not listen when I said I didn’t feel well? That included my mind. Lol
I watched some of the memorial program this morning. Of course we all remember where we were that day ten years ago. I was on the playground at Kingston and I remember thinking when I was told by another teacher about a plane crashing into the building that it must have been some poor private plane pilot who got off course or something. I felt so sorry for him. Then in a few minutes we knew the truth of the situation and we barely got through the rest of the day.
So much of our life has changed in those ten years! It is no wonder that our lives are measured and mourned and celebrated in decades. I couldn’t begin to list all of people who have come and gone and impacted our life in the last ten years, the number of changes that have occurred in our jobs and home, the experiences we have had since that fateful day. And yet we don’t forget the important people, the most significant things. They are there in our minds for the retrieving and the remembrance.
I hope today is a day of blessing and remembrance for you.
