No, they are not the Rockies..which I have heard are pretty spectacular.
But, these are my mountains!
(Ok, Mine and thousands of others)
But, I don't mind sharing.
Especially if they can bring the peace and comfort to others that they bring to me.
I have gone to these mountains all my life. This was where as a kid we vacationed with life long friends. So for me as a child these mountains were fun.
Now, I go to these mountains as an adult. I take my kids there, I go with just my hubby and I or I go down and spend some time with the friends that have always been a part of my life.
Oh, they still represent fun. They are still a vacation place.
But, now they are now soooo much more.
Now they are a place I go to refresh. Relax. Revive.
These mountains are a shot in the arm.
When life gets overwhelming, they are a place to go, and leave all those cares behind.
As a kid, I only saw the fun. The time spent with friends. The place to run, and spend Dad's money on vacation stuff.
Now, I see the beauty. I see the awesome world that God has created for me. (Yes, once again, I realize He created it for everyone else too!)
But, while here, in these mountains, I breathe in the peacefulness, the beauty. Then I exhale the stress.
You see, this is what my mountains have become to me....
