Happy Wednesday. I’ve had a quirky week so I thought I’d just take a little vacation with all of you before I head out on a road trip to the RWA (Romance Writers of America) Conference. Let’s start with a nice image of a peaceful place.
This was taken on a river near where we live in Florida. Quite and beautiful and out in the middle of nowhere. My husband wanted to find some of the illusive pitcher plants so on another trip like this one, we were again out in the middle of nowhere looking for these little orchid-like plants that grow in the swamps. It was hot and we went on a rather long hike that involved bugs, weeds, and me whining for water. Weeks later, as we were driving on a familiar road that we use almost every day, I glanced over into the ditch and saw hundreds of pitcher plants. Right there near our home! We’d never noticed them before.
I think this is a case of not seeing the forest for the trees! Sometimes, the things we need to see are right there in front of us but we’re so busy searching “out there” in the world that we just don’t notice what we already have. So I don’t have a good picture of the pitcher plant but I do have a memory that always makes me laugh and makes me remember to thank God for what is right there in front of me.
Hope you have a great Wonderful Wednesday. Look for something you haven’t noticed before!
