I often remind myself to take the time to "Look around you!"
One late afternoon recently while driving through Hingham on my way home at the end of a busy day, I felt a particularly deep sense of joy and appreciation.
Beautiful homes surrounded me on the left and right, there was a light coating of snow on the ground, windows shed a warm glow from within, and all seemed right with the world. When I arrived home there was a beautiful flower arrangement from one of my sons sitting on the table, which further warmed my heart.
I have always appreciated Hingham -- for its great schools, community spirit, captivating ocean views, overall sense of well-being, and a spirit of generosity in helping friends and neighbors during challenging times in their lives.
Hingham residents rally to a good cause, share an almost endless stream of interesting posts on social media, plant beautiful gardens and take good care of their yards, and support what they consider to be worthy projects and actions at Town Meeting. The list seems endless.
There's no special message here except to suggest taking the time to "Look around you" to discover sights and sounds that you may have never noticed before, however simple. It's a great feeling!
