Today is Sharing Sunday!
I went to the Mt. Diablo State Park today to watch the sunset. Technically I couldn’t get into the park because there was a ton of traffic getting in right before the sunset. Because the park closes at sunset the ranger mentioned I wouldn’t have made it to the top of the summit in time. But there are beautiful views along the winding road through through the hillside. The park is in Walnut Creek, CA and it costs $10 to enter (here’s the link to the site if you are interested in going).
Every sunset is different; the clouds change the way the sun rays shine down on earth and sometimes the colors of the sun shine on the clouds especially the ones in the east. The colors vary from yellow and orange to pinks and purples. It’s a beautiful new painting in the sky every single evening.
Taking the time to watch the sunset or sunrise will make you appreciate the natural beauty in the world. It can also make you slow down a bit and be less impatient. Stop and take a moment to enjoy the present moment instead of getting too involved with the past and future. Watch the sun set and take notice of everything that changes in the sky, the ground and everything around you. The shadows move across the valleys, the sun shines its bright orange glow along the hillside, the rays push through the clouds, the wind brushes your face, all bringing you closer to nature. Share your photos of the sunrise or sunset this week. Inspire others to get outside and take in the beauty and wonder of the world.
Today I found out a friend of mine passed away. Her passing has made me feel even stronger about valuing the time we get to spend with those around us. Don’t forget to show your appreciation for loved ones and be grateful for having the chance to be here on earth. Life is such a precious gift. I am grateful to have had Pamela Thomas in my life even if it was for a short time. This evening I watched the sunset and pictured her light shining on through all of us 🙌🏻
Here are some of the photos that I want to share with you from today’s sunset.
