But this particular afternoon was absolutely perfect - warm sun (mid 70s at least), calm breeze, fresh grass, and mountains to gaze at forever. I took advantage of the 15 minutes of solitude to lay on the grass like a homeless person and just ponder ... nothing. It felt so nice to just be ... be ... well, just be! I realized I hardly EVER have a minute just for me, it's either co-workers or third graders or family or friends or husband or dog needing me. Don't get me wrong - I love my life and everyone in it. But I've been neglecting my need for quiet! So it was a cherished moment of calm that helped me get on with my life. (And gosh, I don't even have kids yet ...)
Thanks Emily for your amazing friendship. If it weren't for you I'd never enjoy the nature on the Jordan Parkway Trail or laugh my guts out at least once a week!
