Day #17


Relief is a beautiful feeling. A stomach un-knotted. Shoulders lightened. An unexpected moment to breathe.

Today has been laced, sweetly and simply, with relief. And it brought a smile every time…

Medical tests results that were good after years of uncertainty.
Extra time to get caught up at work ended with an empty “to do” list.
Paid leave so a fella could give his body rest when it needs it most.
Dinner cooked when arriving home from work after 6:00pm.
Tickles, giggles, kisses, and joy together before bed time with no attitude or arguing.

Relief… one of the simplest pleasures life has to offer, if we take notice.

My final moment of relief was upon having such a crazy, busy day–my Love walked a mile in my shoes (figuratively), and will share his thoughts with you tonight.

As I sit here now: pjs, hot tea, and good book in hand, I wish you all a good night my gentle readers… I wish you all blissful relief.A green tea cup with panda bears perched on a lap with a backdrop of pin-striped pajamas.

I'm mother, wife, and worker but most important human. I have accepted a challenge to "take a walk" everyday for one year. My goal is in giving space to mindfulness I will create intentional living. I've decided to share my journey through blogging. Be it peace, be it inspiration, be it annoyance, I hope you feel as you read and in feeling may growth transpire. Namaste my gentle readers...
