As I sat, I noticed so many dragonflies flying through the sky. I had never seen so many in the air at once before. And then, a dragonfly with beautiful black and white wings landed right in front of me:
I waited a little while longer and watched the breeze create a ripple on the surface of the pond. I sat, admiring the beautiful plants growing here like this one:
And then, I heard a quiet splash. I looked around but couldn't spot anything that would have made the sound. I waited again and looked closely.
Can you see it? That cute little frog was checking me out, hiding so well among the vegetation in the water.
But a few minutes later I saw another one, hiding under a water lily:
And as quickly as he popped up, he was soon gone under the lily pads and I lost sight of him (or maybe it was a her??)
I can't tell you how long I sat there, just observing life, alongside that pond. But when I finally got up, I felt so peaceful and happy to have stopped for a moment instead of rushing by. That's what life is all about right? Stop and smell the roses (or in this case, stop and watch for frogs!)
