The Beauty of Nature through my Eyes....
Nature....for as long as I can remember I have always loved nature. From the smallest bug to the most beautiful trees. I can close my eyes and remember picking dandelions...for giving as bouquets or to have a friend smell them and smear it on their nose...of course you had to be ready to run because they would do it back to you.
I remember picking 4 Leaf Clovers...Mom always said they were Good Luck ....and who doesn't want good luck ? To this day, I have seen her checking the grass looking for a 4 Leaf Clover...I hope she finds one.
Something so small to give you a feeling , a memory of when you were young or young at heart. I can close my eyes and remember chewing on a blade of grass...everyone did that. My older brother, did it all the time. I always wondered if he got his large goiter from doing that...Funny memories...that could be a whole new subject.
When I was younger, I had a best friend that loved nature too. We would go to an open field that had a few trees...we pretended these trees and a little grass around them were islands.We would lay on our backs looking up at the sky....just soaking it all in. We checked out the grasshoppers and any other bug that came along. Then we we tired of that we went to the stream, WOW....the greatest things we would see in the pond. Tadpoles or pollywog's...they were so neat. We put them in an old mayonnaise jar and watched them grow...we would take them back to the pond and get different ones so they wouldn't die.
Do you remember Lightning Bugs? I loved those too.You would take a mayonnaise jar and run around and try to catch some at night..Then you would take the jar and set it in your bedroom and sit and watch them light up for a few hours or until you fell asleep.
Just little things that make a big impression in your life. Have you ever thought about why someone or something has left a lasting impression? I have...someone you meet and something clicks and you are friends...something you see and can't wait to see it again. I think one of the most terrible things for me would be to lose my sight...I wouldn't see the flowers, the grass, the sky, the birds or peoples faces...Quite scary thinking about it.
Mother Nature.....is quite a wonder in my book. She keeps you guessing all the time with the weather, keeps you wondering when a flower will bloom, when the hummingbirds will make it here or the orioles? I could go on and on, but I think you can get the picture.
Next time you take a walk in a woods or walk down a busy street, take a moment and enjoy everything around you. The chirping of the birds, the sound of the wind in the trees, or feel the wind in your hair...it is terrific. In other words I think Mother Nature is the greatest...every experience is different....everything has a purpose...it was put here for us to enjoy, so I hope you do. I hope I never take one thing for granted...the beauty of Nature is outstanding.

I really enjoyed ythis post, Sherry. It was interesting to read, it brought back memories of my own and ...perhaps most importantly: it shows what a thoughtful and sensative person you are. Good qualities for a for a very good person, I believe.
Some of the same memories, some different...nice :)
