giving thanks (these days)

summer is in full swing in the interior west, and it feels both familiar and brand new in a million ways. the way the sun settles into the lake each night stills my mind and gives me peace at heart. 

lately I have been really thankful for mountain lakes & good hiking buddies, 

 
for feeling small in a big, big world, 

  

for the joy & laughter of campers,

  

and for the promise that we are never alone, even in our deepest sadness and struggle. 

 
I have been discerning the future a lot this week and am hoping for some clarity soon, but am also so happy to be here, in this place, at this time. Being brave. 

What are you thankful for today?
