Gratitude Project: Day 7
We spent ALL day (in the car) driving back from Santa Fe; and as we were leaving I stood in the street to stop and take one last picture of this building. Never before has it really dawned on me to such an immense degree as to how "NORMAL" is so very different for people in the world. While I stood there taking this photo, a local woman turned around to see what I was photographing. She looked at me, shook her head, gave a little chuckle, then crossed the street and kept walking. To me this was spectacular architecture I don't see in Fort Worth, but to the people who live in New Mexico... this is their normal.
Today I am grateful for SEEING someone else's NORMAL with eyes of amazement.
1. The beautiful red adobe building resting underneath the brilliant blue skies of Santa Fe was the very essence of God's color wheel in action. I was thankful for the eyes that allowed me to see this and so very grateful that the Creator chose to give us hues beyond mere black and white. STOP today and realize ALL color is a gift NOT required but GIVEN for us to appreciate.
2. Viewing the world with awe gives you a fresh perspective to the one-and-only life you have been given. It's so easy to get in a rut of just " going through the motions" of daily life and forgetting someone out there is looking at your NORMAL with the eyes of WOW.... how great would it be if we could do that too.
3. While we drove out of this beautiful town, I was so thankful for the ability to take a week's Anniversary Vacation with someone who loves me. Being away from chores, yard work, jobs, animals, dishes, dinner, and most technology gave us a chance to appreciate the person we chose to walk these steps of "LIFE" with.
