All of todays photos are from the hike I took on Sunday afternoon just before the polar vortex hit. As it is -20 ish as I type, I’m thinking my timing was pretty great. I’d love to get back up Cottonwood Canyon with my camera and document the changes over the past three days, but . . . I’m just not crazy enough to do that in this frigid weather.
So instead I’ll focus on being grateful and maybe if I’m lucky I’ll go for an indoor walk at the mall.
I do have much to be thankful for and a loving and caring God who provides so very much. These details are absolute assurance to me that he loves and cares for me specifically – how else would all these blessings come into my life?
