Peace and quiet.
After several days of running around, doing this and that, never slowing down but rushing from one distraction to another, I suddenly realized I didn't have any idea what I was doing, My head was in a whirl. I sat down at my computer and my brain simply died, I didn't know if I was supposed to check email, post on Facebook or balance the bank account.
So...I took today to catch up. I went to the barn early, shared a breath with Josie and took a few minutes without distractions to get my head in order.
Amazing what those few minutes did. My blood pressure went down, my heart quit pounding and suddenly, a plan formed in my head of how to get everything on my to-do list done.
My mom always said the same thing about putting her hands in the soil. Immediate relief from the stresses of life. A friend of mine quilts. Others do cross-stitch or paint. Whatever it is that gives you peace, I hope you find it. I wish for you a few quiet moments and the relief they bring.
