Right Outside My Window…

I’m the type of person who is so busy that I’m usually oblivious to the things that are right in front of me.

This morning was no exception.

I sat at the table, not content just to sit.  I picked up a book and turned to where I’d left off a few days ago.

For some reason, I looked outside my window, and that’s when I spotted a squirrel.

He must have known that the dogs were locked away safely inside, thus granting him free reign of the yard.

I watched as he hopped back and forth, pausing now and then to listen or to think about his wonderful life, I suppose.

That’s when I got out my camera and snapped a few photos…

I found it a little funny as I watched him begin digging in my yard.  Gambit has dug a number of holes around the yard, so to see this little creature dig his own hole made me think that digging must come with the furry body gene…

I kept my lens trained on him and managed to get off the next shot, which I especially like…

I’m so glad I put down my book and was just…well…still…even for a little while.

In those few minutes that I watched one of God’s smaller creatures enjoying his own somewhat relaxed life, I, too, found myself relaxing a bit.

I love this time of year and the promise it holds.

I love that Spring Break whispers of a summer break in the not-too-distant future…a time when I can let down my hair for a longer span of time and simply take time to just be.

If only I’d stop…for just a little while…and allow myself to enjoy the view that exists right outside my window.

  1. Profound words and wonderful photos.

  2. Squirrels are fun to watch. They can be quite comical at times. I enjoyed watching our chipmunks last year. It good to stop and take time to smell the roses 😉
