Life is Good

Yesterday, I had such a nice day. I dropped the kids off at Sunday school and wasn't sure what to do with my 3 hours I had free. I thought about going to the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, but didn't want to spend the money. Besides, it was a beautiful day. I thought about walking around, looking at the beautiful old houses uptown, but my ankle is still healing and I don't want to push it. So, I ended up at our central park and decided to sit and read. As I parked and walked across the park, I noticed the koi pond. So I stopped and watched the fish for awhile. The only people there were a couple of older gentleman enjoying the morning. I found a bench in the sun and just sat for awhile. There was a slight breeze, the sky was bright blue, some church bells were ringing in the distance.

My mom called and I told her where I was. A little later, she showed up to join me. We sat for a while, talked a little, read a little. When it was time for me to leave and pick up the kids, we both commented on how much we needed this. It has honestly been a long time since I've spent any time in the sunshine, since I've felt the breeze. My days are normally filled with driving and work, so the only fresh air I get is from the car to the apartment, from the car to the office.

This was something very simple, free, and of tremendous value. I left feeling rejuvenated, more alive, and I will now make sure to incorporate a little time to sit or walk in the sunshine every day and just soak it up!

You're so right! Getting outside for some fresh air is so restorative. Our mom's were right when they told us "Go out side and get some fresh air. It'll do you good"! Glad you got to enjoy a simple pleasure...

I am so happy to get some hero gold and the hero online gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the hero online money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy hero gold with the spare money and I gain some hero money from other players.
