Let’s go back a few years ago… maybe over a decade. Family vacations were usually places we could drive to, and on every road trip someone would always ask me, “How beautiful are those tress, those leaves, or those mountains?” I would usually respond with a roll of the eyes then proceed to listening to my music. This started a run-on family joke. “Go ask Jessica about the leaves, she hates it!” I didn’t like the joke.
One year for my birthday I was gifted a rather large and heavy present. I excitedly unwrapped a book. Just to paint a picture of myself back then, I didn’t like books or enjoy reading like I do now… and to complete the joke, it was a nature book. They got me. I’m pretty sure my face was red and annoyed.
Its funny how things change. Exploring what this world has to offer is absolutely beautiful. The tables have turned. So, here’s my question to you… How beautiful are those trees, those leaves and those mountains?
