Thankful Thursday

"Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars" Bart Howard

We've been singing that song all week. Maybe b/c they sang it at the graduation or maybe b/c  summer days just feels so incredibly good. Everything is laid back,  lazy and total fun.

Whatever it feels good. Grateful for....

-trip to see the whales. Exhilarating to speed across the water and witness these magnificent creatures play in freedom and grace. Breathtaking and humbling. I still see them in my mind.
-Met a new friend, someone whose a kindred spirit, who has a story like mine and also a desire to shine hope. 
-hiking again everywhere. Breathing in the smell of trees, woods, flowers and water. Nothing gives a greater high than nature.
-spending quality time with my girls, laughing, chatting, goofing around.
-Mostly that He's in my my soul, singing songs of happy over and over and over. I have no idea what tomorrow brings, but for today, fly me to the moon and let me play among His stars. 

Happy Thursday, Guys!!!!!

Love that song - and you're right, it does remind me of this summer season! I've never gone whale-watching! You'd think that living in California all these years that I would have - (a tendency to seasickness might have something to do with it!) But they are indeed beautiful creatures.

And yes, nature is such a natural high - couldn't agree more!

Have fun and precious days with your girls, Nikki.

This is uplifting as always Nikki... being outdoors on a nice day can replenish our souls. There is so much beauty, I have been walking for quite a few miles for the past four days, I am really enjoying being out, it has helped me appreciate all the beauty. Have a great weekend :)

Hi Nikki,
It sounds like your Summer is off to a great start. Being out among nature gives me my high too.
I love what you said about Him being in your blood. We don't have to put Him in a suitcase or backpack to take Him along because He is right there inside of us. Awesome, isn't it?

I am about to have all my kids home for three weeks so I will be taking a blogging break after Monday. Talk to you when I get back. Till then, keep smiling!

Love and hugs from PEI,
