Gratitude Project: Day 2
OMG... I can not even tell you how many things I took pictures of today knowing that I was going to write about one of them.
I can tell you first hand that it definitely created MORE GRATITUDE in my DAY!
The scripture "Seek and Ye Shall Find" brought on a whole new meaning today. I was seeking things to be grateful for and finding them EVERYWHERE.
Today I am Grateful for my West Texas roots. Tomorrow is our 1 year anniversary and we left this morning to drive to Santa Fe, New Mexico for our 1 year Honeymoonaversary. As we were passing through the Caprock near Post, Texas I felt an overwhelming smile creep over my face.
1. When I was a little girl, my brother and I would go spend some long weekends with my Granny & Grandad in Levelland, Tx, and we always met at my grandparents at the Post rest-stop. I loved the feeling of seeing Granny waving at us all the way until we parked.
2. I was thankful for ugly "tumbleweeds" and the many childhood memories I have running from them calling them "Sticker Monsters".
3. And my favorite memory of ALL... is the story my mom would always tell us about this exact little mountain (hill) as we drove past EVERY single time saying "Do you see me up there at the very top riding my horse in the wind with my ponytail blowing in the back behind me?" haha and we would always stop and giggle knowing she never had a horse or a ponytail.
So.... next time I feel frustrated at the dirt blowing and the wind messing up my hair... I will remember that being a country girl from West Texas has given me roots strong enough to forever ground my tree!
