And escaping is just what I need to do.
The past year has been one of the most emotionally draining in my life. I don't know why . . . but I am not keeping myself in line on the emotion side of life as much as I have in the past. Maybe I never have. Maybe I've always been a big ol'stress magnet. But this past year, it is really hanging on me, and I am feeling it.
So, I am heading to sunny Arizona for a few days of R & R.
And I can't wait.
The last time we were there, I snapped a few moments like these . . .
I can't wait for the pool . . . seriously . . . the sunshine . . .
the warmth . . . the sound of children laughing . . . all of it.
I can't wait for the blue skies . . . and the ride up to Sedona,
where the mountains look like a painting left by God . . .
I can't wait to see all the silly cactus plants . . . they make me laugh . . . out loud . . .
each with their own personality . . . doing their own special dance for all of us to enjoy . . .
I am hoping to reconnect with all of these things, again, with two welcoming days of pool time in Phoenix, and a day of soul searching fun in between in Sedona. Then, home.
My spirit needs it, bad.
I'm hoping you find some moments of wonderful inner peace, too, my friends.
Till we meet again . . .
