Today was one of those days. You know the one. It’s the one that at the end of it every thing just feels right.
It wasn’t a day of vacation. It was a normal work day for me doing the normal bookkeeping stuff, visiting with customers, answering phone calls and cleaning up cars. It wasn’t extraordinary in any particular way but it felt right.
After work I took the top off the Corvette and drove a half hour through beautiful countryside to meet friends for dinner. Wires must have been crossed because when I got there no one was there that I was supposed to meet but it was okay because it was a beautiful evening for a ride.
When I got home I stood outside taking clothes in off the clothesline and just listened. In the distance I could hear the kids singing from the local bible camp across the road, loons calling in the distance, and an occasional fish jumping in the water.
I watched the changing colors across the lake as the sun was setting and a bat swooping down to the surface collecting bugs for its dinner.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to appreciate all that surrounds me. It’s beautiful and serene.
