Day 131: Bask

IMG_2386Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating on these posts–I mean, just the other day I was writing about the importance of enjoying the day. And I’ve written about how much I enjoy climbing outdoors with my kids. So did I really “experiment” with anything new today?

Maybe not. But I did have a wonderful day not doing it.

I wrapped up this solo weekend of hanging out with all three kids by spending the day outdoors at Foster Falls. It’s a beautiful spot in Tennessee, and truly a climbing destination. We slept in late and took our time getting there this morning, even though we knew that we would have to leave early enough to get back to Atlanta for a Mother’s Day dinner. But still, we had enough time to enjoy being outdoors together.

So I supose today was simply a day to bask in the beauty of the day. Tomorrow I am sure there will be all sorts of things to toss out, and all sorts of boxes to begin loading. For today, though, it was a good day to be outdoors and enjoy the rock and the sun with my children.

    Outdoors with your children, rock, sun, sounds like bliss! Great purpose 🙂

      Agreed! Though as I’ve noted before, that “bliss” is always tempered with the human (ie, there’s grumbling, and fussing, and irritation mixed in with all the joy, and fun, and adventure). And that’s just fine too!

    Self-created suffering often is rooted in the frantic desire to attain something other than what we already have . . .

    But nothing lasts.
    So what’s the rush?

    Enjoy the journey as each moment unfolds into the next.
    Be patient. Life is stirred with a slow spoon.

    Just BASK!
