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~

Million Dollar Road for SkyWatch Friday~

My heart thoughts go out to the families who have been touched by the recent Hurricane Sandy, tropical storm, flooding, and earthquake...
It has been devastating to millions and I lift this tragic situation up~

The "Million Dollar Highway" in Colorado, was completed in 1924. 
Twelve of the miles cost a million dollars per mile to build. 
It is both challenging and dangerous with much of it without guardrails, high cliffs and very narrow lanes. 
The day we crossed over, we had sunshine at the base and then hail, sleet and snow at the top. 
Needless to say, I prayed the whole way. 
All images were taken through the windshield/windscreen~

From my home on Tingsgrove,

May your day, your week,
always be filled with sunshine of the heart
and a silver lining~
