Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

December 12, 2013

   Today, I set aside a day for me. Sure, I did my chores and a few other “must do” jobs, but then I just did what I wanted. I can almost say I wasted part of a brisk, cold day … but it wasn’t wasted at all, I used it for my mental health!

   It is so easy to get caught up in all of life’s problems. We, as a society, are way too busy. We need to slow down now and then, just to decompress. The only thing I didn’t do was take a nap…and I probably should have done that too 😮

   I messed with my horses, played with the newborn piglets, romped with the dog and got my back fixed. I took a walk in the pines and listened to God’s music in the branches. I let my mind rest while my fingers chilled a little bit. Then later, I warmed those fingers around a cup of tea.

   It was a day for me and I am so much better off for taking it!!
