Puddle Jumping

The morning rains stopped while I was running errands.





I was pleased I had worn my rain hat


and boots.



I stopped at the park


and took a walk!



There were puddles on the trail

and standing water.




I did not mind.






I walked and I thought.


I was aware.


I reflected.

I breathed in the cool Spring air.

Walking is good for my body and my soul.

You have a great way of placing your attention exactly where you want it to go.

You pick and speak your words with respect, and the world speaks to you because of it.

WOW.... the photos you share are fabulous. I love your yellow boots and matching hat. I can't wait till my tulips arrive. I am thinking after this rain we are getting it won't be long.
Happy Puddle Jumping - I enjoy your blog!
