Fridays, I love to stretch myself by participating in Lisa-Jo's 5
minute Friday blog party. Lisa-Jo gives us a word and we write for 5
minutes, writing from the heart, and not doing endless revisions of what
we have written. Just plain and simple off-the-cuff writing. Visit
her at her blog, Lisa-Jo Baker: tales from a Gypsy Mama, if you would like to participate.
Today's word is ....
I'm just not an observant person, which is why I had to give up my aspirations to be a spy. As I've told many times, I didn't even see my own husband whose car had broke down on the side of the road.
But lately, I've been training my eyes to look around me, to see the beauties of nature. I have been making a conscious effort to feast my eyes on the gorgeous landscapes God has created. The other day, the sun was shining through ruby red, flaming orange and vivid yellow trees as I was driving to work. Oh, if only I had time to stop and photograph all that beauty!
