Appreciating Today

Taking a little time this morning to
be thankful for all I have.



And to enjoy the little things in life.




Because the things we take for granted
someone else is praying for.




I hope everyone has a happy week.
We are taking the train into downtown Portland today..  
I have my camera..  Lets see what I can find.
