What place am I grateful for?

So many places but the one I’m grateful for today is Phoenix.

I grew up in Phoenix Arizona so this place is special to me. I love this city  with all the different things to do, how it hums along with all the activities and people.

Phoenix offers the fine arts and museums as well as food from all sorts of cultures around every corner. Or the great out doors can be enjoyed with a wonderful hike. There so many great mountains in and around this city.

One more thing this city has the sweet smell of orange trees and cactus blossoms greeting you as you walk out of your home into the warm sunshine that smiles down on you in the winter months when so many are shoveling snow. Even all the birds fly here so there sweet songs to keep you feeling alive even in the middle of January. The sound of the desert dove reminds you that this desert is anything but humdrum.

One thought on “Place

  1. I think your description of Phoenix is great. One thing I remember and liked about the city is being able to swim without freezing. The water was refreshing but didn’t freeze you and make you wonder why you wanted to swim in the first.
