It was a good reminder for me that life is fleeting. But sometimes things jump out at you like a cardinal on the white snow... reminding you to take a breath... and appreciate the sunset.

I had the perfect 'sunset' reminder moment today. I was sitting at my computer frantically filling out a job application when I looked outside my window for a brief moment. In that moment I saw two cardinals fly onto a tree in my backyard and stayed their for 10 minutes or so. Sitting and seeing their stark red coloring against the backdrop of freshly fallen show was beautiful. I sat and just looked at those birds for a few moments thinking about how lucky it was that I was sitting at my computer and looking out the window when they flew in.
