A week ago today, the sky looked very different around our parts .... heavy, dark rain clouds hung in the sky. A good portion of the afternoon was spent in office basements, school locker rooms and home closets, as tornado's touched down all over North Texas. We were very lucky, as we were untouched. There are hundreds of other families who were not as lucky, and we are praying for them.
This was what I thought about this morning, as I was on my walk .... yes, unbelievable as it is, I'm still sticking to my healthier 2012 New Years resolution:-)
So, I thought I'd invite you to take a walk with me today .....
Streams meander all the way through our community, and they're alive with all sorts of animal life ... turtles, fish, birds, frogs ....
We have miles of walking and biking trails that have been built over the past few years. Wildflowers are blooming all along the trails ..... So beautiful.
This bush had lots of ladybirds on it ..... it must be tasty pickings for them.
I love this picture !!!!
Every now and again events happen, that we have no control over, but they cause us to stop, re evaluate, and become more aware of the simple things that make life happier ....... Last Tuesday was one of those days.


  1. what a wonderful post....I love those ladybugs.
    We are glad you came through unscathed!

  2. Kerry,
    This is a beautiful and moving post! It's good to take time to think about how fortunate we are; so many others are less fortunate. Your pictures are gorgeous. I love ladybugs.
