Stop and smell the flowers

Day 194 of #LiveWell2017

Day 194 smile

While hiking yesterday, we came across several patches of avalanche lilies still in bloom. The nodding yellow and white flowers blanketed small sections of the forest floor. Each time I passed by a patch of them, I stopped and smiled. They are such pretty things, and they dance in the breeze. For some reason they all face the same direction, too, like soldiers lined up for inspection. They called for my attention, and gave me cause to pause and be fully present in the moment, giving them my full attention.

What gave you pause today? When were you present in the moment?
