Hello! It’s Me Again!

 

 

I haven’t been on social media much over the past year.  Outside of sharing images on Instagram, I’ve pretty much avoided the whole scene.  I grew tired of all the nastiness that seemed to pop up everywhere.  I couldn’t get past how vicious some people could be.  The trolls were making me lose my faith in humanity.  So – I stepped back.  I took a much-needed break and I refocused my energies.

Volunteering with the homeless shelter reminded me of all my blessings.

Seeing my husband retire from his job as a law enforcement officer filled me with gratitude.  After years of calls – he came home.  Safely.

Photography classes reminded me that the world is beautiful – as are most people.

After being stuck in an office all week, I treasure the time I have outdoors.  This weekend the weather was perfect for getting out the camera and having a little shutter time.

One of my favorite places to visit is the New Hanover Arboretum.   I find it so relaxing. The flowers, the water feature, the animals – they all work together to take visitors to another place far away from troubles and worries – to a place where imagination rules and happiness abounds.arboretum 1

Here’s wishing you a wonderful day!  May happiness find you!

Note:  I wasn’t the recipient of the nastiness – just an observor who felt heartsick at what I witnessed.
