Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Happy Thanksgiving for SkyWatch Friday~

One hour intervals...

First the sky just following sunrise...

                                          One hour later and the Canada Geese flew over~

                                           Another hour later I drove by this field of spent grain.

                                                        The sunny clouds made me happy~! 

                                                        It was a glorious SkyWatching day~

For my friends in America...I wish you a very warm and blessed Thanksgiving holiday with your family.  We each have so much to be thankful for~

For my friends whom are not American citizens, but otherwise live in other countries, I would also like to bid you a very blessed day, and year, for I am also thankful for your very kind friendship along life's journey~

Take a journey with me as I invite you to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at:
