On March 27, 2011 we headed south through Alberta towards California for our second US book tour for On Toby’s Terms. As excited as we were to feel the sand between our toes and the surf crash over us on the beach, I watched the Alberta scenery fly past my car window and noticed how beautiful our county is.
From snow covered farm fields, to hoarfrost icicles on evergreen trees, to mountains that go on forever to beautiful lakes, rivers and streams. On May 1, we headed back home through BC, and I felt the same appreciation for the beauty of openness of our country.
As you go about your day today, take a few moments to take in and appreciate the beauty of your neighbourhood, your local parks, and the scenery that passes by your car window. Sometimes we are so busy with our life that we don’t take in what is around us.
