Beauty all around us!

It's been a REALLY rough few days. I am tired. I am beaten down. I am depressed. And I HURT. But I am trying to remain positive, look at the blessings in my life and be the woman I am called to be. Sometimes in all that life gives us, it's best to take a step back and have a little time out! I needed that today :) Well... if I were honest I have probably needed that for awhile, but I took it today!


I have not had time to read many of the blogs that I regularly read these last few days. It's a fact of life, I just can't always do what I want to! But in catching up I read one of my dear friends post about her Rocky Mountain Sunsets HERE.... and decided I have not allowed myself to enjoy a central coast sunset in way too long!


So tonight Audrey and I headed up to my all time favorite thinking spot to enjoy the sunset... and it was a BEAUTIFUL one too!




I love this ranger station... anytime of the day!


Can I just say that we are so blessed to live within 4 minutes of this beautiful area. Some days I take it for granite... and I so shouldn't! I LOVE this spot! Even though a million other people were there tonight too. It was still beautiful. Just not peaceful, due to a hoard of SCREAMING children, none of which were mine!


Thank you Lord for this blessing!

I'm so glad you took the time to take care of yourself a bit. That sunset WAS gorgeous and so is that little girl you spent the evening with. And...don't count yourself out. Your spirit is beautiful and your knowledge of a loving God watching over you is priceless!
