Moni comes to Montana

Last week a dear friend traveled up from California. We spent two nights under the stars, sleeping next to a lusty creek. The land coated in lush green plants and abundant with wild flowers. We did a day hike through a forest to an enormous raging waterfall and enjoyed campfires at night. In the afternoon we headed to the creek to relax and let Moni soak her healing foot (recently kicked by a horse) in the icy water that ran over the beauty of the pink and purple rocks. As we sat, she read and I drew a picture of the beauty of our time together.

For me, time with loved ones is precious.

  1. That sounds wonderful. I would certainly feel healed if I enjoyed that day. Ah, I can imagine it. Alas, I have two toddlers who demand most of my attention and time. I forget that they won't always be this little and there will be time again for experiences like you have.

  2. Liked reading how you spent your day and seeing your artwork. It is wonderful to have these kinds of experiences. Hope you have many more of them. Sincerely, Connie
