Isn’t nature glorious?! Couldn’t you just take lifetimes marveling at all the myriad ways life manifests on this planet. We get busy. We forget to look. Let’s take today and slow down and really look at how beautiful the earth is and feel deep gratitude. Or as Ralph Waldo Emerson so eloquently put it, let’s “Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.”

Today’s post is a little video I put together to give us a gratitude moment for mother earth. From the vast starry sky to the depths of the ocean, we are so blessed with an abundance of beauty. It’s the show of all shows, springing forth new and incredible variety at every turn. As you watch the video, ponder the words of John Muir who said,  “This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”
