I really enjoy living in a place where you can feel connected to nature and the natural environment that surrounds you. Last night, while coming into the village where we live I got to see the local herd of elk grazing on grass around midnight. I stopped the car probably about 10 feet away from them. They looked at me and continued munching their evening meal. I just watched for a few minutes before coming up the hill to the house. It was a very relaxing and peaceful sight to watch.
Today, I was out in the the front yard talking to one of our neighbors when all of a sudden, I felt a piercing pain in my right hand. I immediately looked down to see a wasp planting his rear end into the palm of my hand. Sure, it stung and still does nearly an hour later. But, I just brushed the little guy off and let him go about his day and thought how lucky I was it picked me! Sometimes it’s just the simple little things that put a smile on my face.
