We live in the valley at the base of the beautiful Mt. Timpanogos.
I love this mountain. I love it in all seasons. I love watching the sunrise over it and the sunset upon it.
When I lived in Florida (which is very pretty but FLAT) I missed this mountain.
I've been trying to help you appreciate this mountain.
Sometimes when we're driving and the sun is setting, I'll point it out to you and tell you how pretty it is.
Sometimes I point out the mountain when we're clear across the valley and I make you say, "Hi, Mountain."
I want you to appreciate how beautiful this world is.
The other day, we were driving to Grandma's. She lives in the city right at the base of the mountain. So we were driving along and the mountain was RIGHT THERE out the window and I was saying, "Nate, isn't that a pretty mountain? Mama loves that mountain. She thinks it's beautiful."
From the back seat, I heard you say, "Mama...." (in hindsight, this is where you were thinking, "how do I break this to her")
"Mama, it just DIRT."
