Somewhere Over the Rainbow.......


Just a quick hello from me today. A busy week again. I went for drive to Pittsworth the country town where we used to have our shop - business reasons. I stopped on the way home and took this picture. What a lovely rainbow. I watched it all the way home - sometimes even a double rainbow appeared.
Tomorrow we commemorate Anzac Day here in Australia. It's public holiday so looking forward to a quiet day.
I have just come back to have a look at this post and was taken back at the beauty I saw in this photo!. I have driven this road hundreds and hundreds of times in my life and I don't think I have ever realised the absolute beauty of this particular area. It has made me realise that I guess I should open my eyes to see the beauty of where I live and maybe not so often wish to be somewhere else.
Tonight I am thankful for my home, my family and the abundant blessings I have in my life. I just have to open my eyes more often and see everything through different eyes.

Lovely photo Leisa... I agree, sometime we just need to slow down a bit a smell the roses.

We get used to our surroundings and forget to see how beautiful it is. Wonderful picture!

Leisa, you are so so right. I am always told what a lovely area I live in and I just take it for granted completely. Will start enjoying it more by not whinging so much about the cold (will try lol)
