Sometimes it takes a situation to make you slow down and smell the roses. Two weeks after my surgery, I was so sore it didn't bother me to be lazy.... But when that ended I nearly went crazy. Now for those of you that don't know me, I only sleep 5 to 6 hours.... That leaves a long gap of time to fill.
It has been nearly six weeks now and I'm happy to report that my "to do" list is much shorter and I'm feeling great.
I was reading on the front porch yesterday, enjoying the rain that was falling and my wind chimes tinkling, and I realized that I felt calm... I mean really a peace with everything. Maybe I can keep this going when I go back to work... Going to try.
I've been catching up on new released books, reading ( but I'm still a tough on author reader), writing, quilting and organizing my cabinets.
I wish I had a magic pill that could give everyone this feeling. Slow and easy really is better.
These are not pictures of my porch but the tranquil feeling is the same.
