I love my beautiful desert. Quiet except for the birds and the breeze...and the jingle of Lily's collar as she faithfully hangs by my side. Clear, blue skies. Large expanses of chocolate, bumpy mountains. The green, orange, pink, purple, yellow, and white melting into summer brown. Stunning cloudless sunsets disappear into black, diamond-sparkled skies over night-awakening blossoms.
A rare moment of solitude in a mommy's life. I rest in it now only for a moment, but I am so thankful to my great Creator of the universe.
