On the country roads between Clermont Ferrand and Marseilles we passed through various scenery. There were orchards, vineyards, small towns, mountains, ruins, bullet trains and river banks. Never ending beauty as we watched from the car. As we neared the top of another snow-capped summit, we pulled over in an effort to experience the beauty that had been passing us by.
It was so much fun to live in the surrounds instead of just viewing it. We had a snow fight, we made snow angels. I laughed and smiled. I know these are things I should be doing everyday; however, many times I feel more like I'm sitting in a car letting life pass by. While I do enjoy the beauty of life, I rarely feel the same thrill I felt as I got out of the car and sunk my boots into the snow. I do on occasion feel more than just a spectator in my own life. It is on those occasions that I remember how much I really enjoy living life.
What are some of the things that help you to smile, live, and laugh?
