Days of Gratitude

It is way past the Canadian Thanksgiving yet I have to post this. Gratefulness has no deadline anyway. Just a run down of the things we are grateful for during our recent trip to the Adirondacks.

Feeling truly blessed for the senses. For eyes that are still able to see the colors of fall and view clouds on mountain tops. For ears that can hear silence and solitude in the running waters and empty chairs. For nose that that can smell fresh air all around. For hearts that still beat while we experience fog in the early mornings, frost on the grass and just the magnificence of nature.

Thankful for the people we met. From the lodge owner, restaurant servers, fellow nature lovers and random tourists who nod and smile. For the food we have taken that provided nourishment, cooked and served for us to enjoy.

Grateful for our safety in the places we have stayed and we visited, for the safe driving and safe drivers around us on the road. We arrived to our destination via detours and mini stops; then arrived safely back home. Thankful for the old reliable Jeep that never fails.

Thankful for technology that still kept us connected to our family and friends. For the friends who remembered us on Thanksgiving day. For the camera that captured what we saw and the moments we had.
