A Glimpse Into The Beauty of Rural America

OK~ It's a beautiful day here in North Iowa. We actually mowed our lawn last evening and I can honestly tell you that I do not remember the last time we mowed in October. Quite often, August is the last time we need to mow. It's balmy today, very windy but warm for October. Last evening I glanced out the South window of our house and this was the view.

I thought to myself, now that's what I enjoy about Rural America. Look at how peaceful things are. The soybeans across the road are being harvested and sunset was just beautiful. I then thought about January and what the view would look like. There will be ice and snow, something I wish we could somehow skip around.

So, I began to make a list of what I do enjoy about Rural America.

  • Quiet
  • Clean Water/Air
  • I Can See For Miles
  • Traffic Is Minimal
  • I Know My Neighbors
  • Sunset And Sunrise Are Stunning
These are really simple things, but are really huge. I take it for granted when I can have a view like this, and then I realize that it's a treat for many to get out into the country to see something like this. Do you get to experience sunrise and sunset where you live? 

I have often heard from people, especially photographers, that a lot of folks miss out on really good stuff because they won't get out of bed in the morning. I have to agree, sunrise is really something to see in Rural America. Next time you are in Rural America, make it a point to experience sunrise and sunset with your kiddos, as they will thank you! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
