The opportunity presented itself and I jumped at the chance. I can think of few others things I'd rather do than take a good long walk in the woods.
I have very little time that I am not in the presence of my children. We have designed our life purposefully that way and I enjoy it. Rarely, I find myself needing some time alone, and I find more often than not I am escaping my own voice than that of my kids. I walked and prayed for quite some time. I can think of no better place, for me personally, to connect with the Divine.
I did have to fight the thoughts, "oh, the kids would love this!" as if we haven't walked this path 10 times together before and I didn't have a camera phone with me!
|Thanks, Mother Nature for the snacks, they were awesome!|
|Yes, that's all there was, and yes, I did.|
