My OLW is rejoice. I chose it because sometimes I get lost in the commotion of life and I need to get a different perspective. It has served me well, when my mind is clear enough to step back and not get lost in the “weeds”. I figured it would be a good pairing with my journey of mindfulness. Which continues to be a work in progress, but I have made great strides.
Camping Weekend Rejoicing:
My daughter came home from Boston despite having another commitment.
My daughters had time to hang out with each other and their cousin.
Two sisters, their husbands, my sister’s two young grandchildren and my nephew joined us.
It didn’t rain and it wasn’t to0 hot.
The fire kept the mosquitoes away.
My daughter caught a fish.
S’mores with GIANT marshmallows.
In the evening someone yelled that a bear was at their campsite and was making its way to neighboring sites.
We got in the car and locked the door and the bear didn’t show up from what we could see in the dark.
We had a lovely lunch at Blue Sky.
Everyone was thankful that we could be together.
