Looking for Treasures

Blue Skies are my Favorite!
Dear Readers,
I like to think of going through my life now, as finding treasures.
There are so many!
In fact, each and every breath I take is a treasure.

Now, I am first to admit this is not always easy, as my bones ache when I get up, and it takes me ten years to get dressed to go for a walk, and hubs is not so patient about waiting for me! Lol

But, it is a treasure I am up, I am able to get dressed in warm clothes.
Coffee, bed, a walk, a pillow, everything is a treasure! My new cochlear implants! 
My family, friends, the birds, dogs, all treasures.

When my head is on the right way, I understand it is my obligation, so to speak, to bring joy to the world, to all the people I love, to share my little treasures.
That in turn, will hopefully bring them a little bit more joy in their world.
On A Treasure Walk!

Which then, makes me happier! It is all a wonderful circle! 
Right now, as I write this, I am sitting in my pjs, on my couch by the Christmas tree, and getting ready to head out for a walk in the FREEZING cold with hubs. 

So I wrote this little poem that I am sharing with you!

As I walk among the trees,
By the streams,
Through the fields, 
On the path of made of pebbles,

I find treasures. 
See, there is a small berry, 
Still red in the snow.
Look there, the sunlight
And blue sky capture my eye!

Other treasures 
I feel. 
I want to take a photo 
Of my treasured feelings.

Of the calmness of the quiet,
Of the excitement of what is around the bend,
Of the survival of a hard hike,
Of the love for the man whose hand
I am holding.

If you are sick today, or sad, or grieving, 
I send you some peace. Life is hard.

I also send out to the world, a bit of joy,
The treasure of loving.

With Gratitude for Hand Warmers,
On Day 1576,

  6. Every year you put to shame my claim that it's too cold to exercise. I love your treasure seeking and am trying to embrace my treasures as well. Thank you for taking us on your hike. ��

    1. Thank you, Shawna! The key is having the right clothes! And not caring about how you look! Lol

  7. It looks so cold there, when it's so hot here. I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year and continue to find treasures!
