Good Day, God!
Imagine my delight when our younger grandson, Mark, sent photos he took of us when we visited him at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.. This was after my wonderful husband, Kit, ran the Boston Marathon the previous Monday!
Mark had carefully arranged for “activities,” and one was the “Walk Across the Hudson” on this lovely bridge. Lovely in itself, but from the bridge we could also see the Boat House for Mark’s Vassar crew. Smile!
Being photographed by a Beloved Grandson — especially in Artistic Black and White — is a joy! And when a photo is good enough to share . . . that is a triple joy!
We are blessed, God! I KNOW that. And I don’t really ever forget it. BUT now I am finally able to FEEL it again in my Bones! Thank You!
The problem was that we had two Very Intense Weeks on the Boston Marathon adventure, and then we were both still HIGH after our return. So we both had a Let Down Period with an assortment of health issues. All are taken care of now. But it was a much needed reminder that our bodies need Relaxation as well as Excitement.
After never missing an opportunity to LIE DOWN, my Dear Body is now saying it wants to exercise and go on more walks . . . maybe even go back to jogging next week. It’s all about balance, isn’t it God?
And mostly we are unbalanced on the DOING side. Lissa Rankin’s book, Mind over Medicine, is really helping. I’m on part three where she talks about the importance of relaxing in healing.
Sounds like what you had in mind for us with the Sabbath!
