Occasionally, when life goes on overload I find myself wishing for the chance to hide away for a bit, a chance to catch my breath and regroup. A friend used to live in a place where a rocking chair sometimes sat in front of a picture window with a wonderful view. I spent a lot of time there in my mind this weekend--rocking in that chair, admiring the view, and thinking.
Sometimes life is a bit stressful. Life with a houseful of teens and twentysomethings is chaotic once in a while—even when some of them don’t live at home. Being able to remove myself from the chaos on occasion is important, even if it can only happen in my mind. I wish circumstances had allowed my ‘mental vacation’ to be a real visit but that’s not how it is. And the mental break was definitely better than nothing. For that I am grateful.
Now it’s Monday, time to start a new week with a fresh perspective. I can do that. :)
Thanks, my friend……
