12 Days of Thanks Giving 2017- ActiveRain Challenge, Day 3

                        “Some old-fashioned things like fresh

                                 air and sunshine are hard to beat.” 
                                     - Laura Ingalls Wilder

I am so overwhelmed with thankfulness for nature.
For me, being outdoors with the sun on my face and beauty surrounding me energizes me. 

I am so very grateful to live in Cumberland County, PA., surrounded by majestic mountains, awed by magnificent creeks and lakes, and having the incredible privilege to meet hikers weaving the path along the Appalachian Trail.

The busyness of life tugs and pulls us in many directions and often scatters our thoughts like papers in the wind.  For me, the calmness of being in nature inspires me and grants me the space to be encouraged and renewed.

Good morning Maria Sapio, I went out this morning and the first thing I said was "I'm thankful for the sunshine". Like you, I love the outdoors and being close to nature, good for the soul.

Beth Atalay - Years ago my dad was very ill.  He was staying with me and could barely move.  Somehow I managed to walk him to the door and I put a chair in the doorway so he could absorb some sunshine.  Sure enough, that was the turning point in his recovery...

Maria,

Nature is so special, and regardless of where I have been throughout the US. I have found that Nature rules.  We agtee with you whoeheartedly. The same is true for the places we have traveled to overseas.  

We were traveling through one of the most unsavory parts of Los Angeles to give a talk at one of the schools that was gated with eight foot high fences and barbed wire, and not far from them was a rose bush in bloom growing through a patch of broken concrete...

You need to move to Denver where we have 300 days of sunshine each year.
