I sit here on my back patio in Nevada with a grateful, yet saddened heart I feel guilty and cannot help but think, wonder, worry & scratch my head at everything that is happening all around. I am able to sit here enjoying the beauty, the peace, the quietness and the calmness that is here as so many others cannot. I have been through the fires that burn in Montana, I have lived through it and seen it firsthand. We just recently drove through Montana as we were visiting and it breaks my heart to NOT see the beautiful mountains, to see all the people being affected by both the fires themselves and the smoke that surrounds so many including those not in the fires path and beyond. We had smoke from many fires consuming the air from North Dakota to Montana and then from Montana all the way past Salt Lake City before we could no longer smell the smoke and finally got to see some beautiful blue skies.
I do not have to worry…..
I do not have to worry about the fires getting too close or the smoke inhibiting me breathing cleaner air….
I do not have to worry about my house and belongings being flooded and ruined by all the flood waters……
I do not have to worry about the hurricanes and the destruction they bring with them…..
I do not have to worry about the Tsunamis that may be showing up due to earthquakes…..
I do not have to worry like so many others do around the world…….
I am grateful to be where I am at yet deeply saddened….. So, today and everyday when you find yourself complaining, when you find yourself upset, when you find yourself wishing you had more “things”, when you find yourself feeling as though things couldn’t possibly be any worse….. Remember, they actually could be a LOT worse and remember that someone somewhere is dealing with more. So, try to appreciate what you have and be grateful more……
My Thought and Prayers to EVERYONE being affected. Big Hugs & Much Luv from me to you as today is yet another day and we all have much to be grateful for…… Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson
What a beautiful sunrise this morning!! It is extremely nice and calming and a lot cooler this morning than the past few weeks as the heat of the sun is mostly blocked by all the clouds here in the desert of Nevada.
None the less is is still beautiful, warm, calming and relaxing to just sit and watch my surroundings as the birds are chirping and flying around. There’s a calmness in the air as there’s no one around, a slight breeze rustling the palm tree leaves, an occasional A/C unit kicking on but otherwise silence.
Good Morning Everyone, may you all find some peace and quiet and some time for yourself to enjoy your surrounding, to think of and to realize all of your blessings no matter what struggles you are facing. I hope you have a Wonderful Day!! Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson
Beautiful Breezy Evening as the sun is going down………such amazing beauty that constantly surrounds us if we just take a moment to look around us!!😊
Life…….Life happens whether we enjoy it or whether we just let it slip by…..
Take a few moments each day to enjoy the beauty and the blessings that you have in your life. Life isn’t just about Money and Materialistic things, they are just things…….. Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson
We walked over 6 miles yesterday through some beautiful territory. Some of our party couldn’t make some of the steep hikes but there was still plenty to see on easy strolls and partial hikes of ups and downs broken up by picture taking along the way. So awe inspiring at the beauty this Country holds from within that so many have yet to see or some may never have the chance. Get out and discover new things whenever you can no matter what your age!! Auntie Carlene is 73 years young…..Explore your surroundings and what this great Country holds from within!! NO Excuses!! There was every race, every body type, every age bracket to be seen throughout the park. Some could easily walk, some were slower than others, some were seasoned hikers, some were on crutches, some were in wheelchairs, some were on bicycles, some were riding on their parents backs…..one thing we all had in common was that we were all enjoying our beautiful surroundings!! You Have this One life to live, right here..right now so you might as well live it up and live life to the fullest!!😊 Don’t live with “I wish I had” … live with “I DID” every chance I got!!!

Looks like a painting but it’s just a picture from my phone while on the road traveling…..beautiful fall colors. Season is changing and the air is cool, the sky is cloudy, dark and no sunshine in sight. Beautiful just the same……….take an extra look around you today, take a second to realize all of the beauty and hidden blessings that are in your surroundings. We ALL have a different view, we ALL look at things differently but we ALL are truly blessed!! Hope you ALL have a wonderful fall day!! Thanks for reading my thoughts……Robin Robinson
