Stop And Smell The Sky

When friends come to visit from other provinces or come up from the States, one thing I hear over and over is

“Wow… the sky just goes on forever and ever”

And we laugh.  Give a smile and a nod.

But it’s one of those things you take for granted when you see it every day.  It becomes so common place that you forget about it.

I was driving through some of the back country roads the other day and it struck me that the sky really does go on forever.  On a clear, sunny day I can get up, make a coffee, stand on my back porch and admire the Rocky Mountains in the distance.  And in every direction there’s clear blue sky as far as the eye can see.

That’s why I chose the picture I did, for yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday.

Because sometimes we need to be reminded to stop and take a look around at what we have.

    This is so true. It is in those quiet moments that I think about how wonderful life can truly be. Now, if I could only find more quiet moments!

    I lived in AB for a coupla years and was often in awe of the sky! It made me feel so exposed and vulnerable, but in a good way (if that makes sense).
