Take Time to Appreciate Nature

What an interesting world we live in. On the bus today the man across the aisle from me spent the one hour ride to the Australia Zoo looking down at this phone texting. Granted there isn’t a lot to see on a motorway, but you can still look out and appreciate the trees, flowers and countryside. Or he could have talked to the woman he was traveling with. Too often it seems like people do not take time to appreciate the world and people around them.  Today is Thanksgiving in the U.S.  Take time to look up and around and be thankful for the beauty that surrounds you, wherever you may be.

Happy Thanksgiving!
