I'm sure she wont mind me sharing.....These are Christina's exact words in her email to me, "No, I can't really say what it means...it just for some reason embodies thankfulness that was in my heart at the moment I snapped it." Once I opened the picture I completely agreed that no words needed to be said about the thankfulness in her heart at the time she took the picture. Unfortunately, we can usually look at visions like this longer than they can last.
I live in a suburb outside of the city. By no means am I on farm land or live in a development where the houses are far and few between. So it always amazes me how many deer come in to our yard several times a day to be fed. Last year we had 21 deer at one time. Sometimes at night, while feeding Olivia mostly, I can see their forms against the white snowy ground. The other night as I was starring out the window, the first thing I thought was, deer make me happy. They are so peaceful to watch. And unless they feel threatened, the way they compose themselves and swagger around slowly seems to make time stop for me. I don't mean like in the movies when two lovers meet and they gaze into each others eyes as things turn slow motion. I mean that during those times when I watch the deer, everything goes quiet and nothing around me matters. For giving me that feeling, I am thankful.
