Sometimes what you are searching for has been right in front of you the whole time.
Last year we made several trips to see the beautiful fall foliage. I decided that the area I have lived the last 8 years would never compare to the vibrant colors I remember growing up in NJ. This year my husband put me on a plane to send me back but as bad luck would have it, I was a week too early. Needless to say, I was disappointed.
It’s a beautiful day here in Oklahoma and I came outside to feel the warmth of the sun gently kiss my face. When I looked through the trees in my backyard, I saw a glimpse of color that caught my eye. Funny I hadn’t noticed those trees before. All those trips and searching for something that was in my backyard the entire time. Who would have guessed that all I would have to do was look up and I would find what my heart had longed to see.
Let this be a reminder how easily it is to lose sight of what is right in front of you. Look up from your phone and your work and you may just see the beauty that is right there waiting for you to notice.
