|A marmot in the morning sun|
This hoary marmot spent part of a sunny Friday morning enjoying the sunshine.
Whatever other important marmot business it had to attend to that day was either done or could wait.
Marmots sun themselves.
It is important to them.
Above, it had a rock and the sun. That's all a marmot needs for a sunbath. I presume it was living in the moment enjoying the warmth and light, and I further presume it was grateful as its current need and desire was being met.
I am grateful to have seen the creature and to have gotten its photo. I am further grateful to have the reminder to be grateful for having what I need when I need it, and to enjoy it.
It's a good reminder.
Be the marmot.
