The Halo

Today I'm wondering: What's something that you take for granted?

I'm going to have to answer Mother Nature.
Because I've spent a lot of my life too busy to notice.
Too busy to stop and savor.
Too busy to enjoy.

That might be why I can't remember seeing a halo, until now.
Look at the beauty that surrounded the sun in the sky over school.

Isn't that majestic?
Turns out it's ice crystals refracting sunlight like a prism.
So much to be grateful for when you just look around.
Or up.
So I'm adding the halo to my gratitude journal.
What are you thankful for today?


  1. Barbara:
    I love these pictures! In my mind, it just shows that angels are watching over your school. I'm thankful for a BlogFriend that inspires me to look for goodness all around me...
