On Sunday we were coming to the end of what had been a busy week. Something to do every day of the previous week, plus a weekend scheduled to the hilt.
Trying to catch up on emails and reading, I reached my limit. Something had to give.
Thoughts of our backyard kept niggling at me. A comfy place to sit, an iced coffee, sunlight and shadows in our mini-forest, and a good book. Summer comes slowly to the Pacific Northwest but when she finally arrives, Summer is glorious here!
I followed my inclination to stop what I was doing and allowed my thoughts to take over. I headed outdoors.
Because of the slow start to the season, our garden isn’t blooming up to par with others, especially since we live in a mini-forest. Yet, lush greens abound and a few colors are beginning to fill empty spots.
As I settled into my chair and looked all around me, I took a deep breath and realized this was just what I needed.
What do you do when it all seems too much?
Try taking time to breathe.
