One of the most peaceful things that I do is just BE in nature.
My husband and I went to a state park today and got to literally hang out with a deer family. The baby and mama loved all over each other. Licked each other’s faces. Another mama came along. They didn’t care one bit that I was right there with them. They acknowledged me and looked at me but then went about just being deer. I love being near them and feeling such peace when I am with them. Nature is the ultimate gift to humanity. Not one thought crossed my mind while I was with the deer other than the great appreciation I had for being able to be in their midst.
The only drawback was that I had hoped to get some photographs but I had my zoom lens on the camera and I was right with them so the photos did not quite turn out like I hoped. But life is not about photos. It is about moments. And sometimes we can capture those moments perfectly on a photo and sometimes not. That’s ok. I got to be with the man I love and the animals I love.
