The small things

Real Estate Agent with

A sight in the forest

Your walking along in the woods. Maybe you see a stream. You are looking at the birds and the trees. In the summer the woods can be dark and cool. Fun to walk in and then you see it. Take a closer look (below). The mushroom is this small intricate thing that springs out of the ground. It is life. It has it's own birth, death, and reproduction. So we post great landscapes and all kind of pictures. I know I do. But along the way we need to see the beauty in the small and understated. It helps us appreciate who we are and puts our work in perspective.

I tell me kids that the small things matter in life. One needs to maintain the small things in order to be blessed with bigger things. We live in an amazing country. Make it happen Today!

That is a very big mushroom!  A walk in the woods is the best thing in the world to refresh and renew your spirit.  There is just something about being so close to nature.  The weather is right for it now too!

Morning Charlie....I love seeing mushrooms growing wherever they pop-up....LOL, a few weeks ago we had some in our yard that were about 8" in diameter.  Another time we had these really stinky....really, really stinky mushrooms....weirdest looking things.  I think the mulch we buy contains the weirdness.  Every time we mulch we're just waiting to see what POPS.  Have a great day :-)
