Simple Wonder

Ever realize that you are actually quite blessed? I think sometimes we get so caught up in the have-tos and the can'ts in our lives, that we lose sight of the wonder that can be found in our surroundings.

I just opened up iPhoto to transfer pictures taken today at work, and I was taken aback. I am at The Sagamore alongside Lake George, to call it exquisite wouldn't even begin to describe it. The pictures literally jump from the screen with the late September sun dancing on the choppy waters of the lake. And the pictures from our trip last weekend frame perfectly the truth that life's sweetes memories take residence in the simplest of moments. We went to Gore mountain to take the gondola to the top for a picnic and gentle hiking. It was breathtaking, with the foliage still a week or two shy of being at their peak.

I just wanted to share it with you, with any luck you'll find the magic in your world.

That photo of the sparkling waves is wonderful. (I'm definitely a water person - some people are tree people, some people are mountain people, but I'm a water person.)

I love the last picture, their two little heads gazing out the window in solidarity.

Beautiful.

PS: So what if I did steal your tape measure? Ontario is a large province: you'll never find me. Mwu ha ha ha!
