Rest for the weary

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

It’s the weekend. You may be at work. You may be working in a field, the garden or house. You may have plans, errands, laundry or another task that gobbles time and leaves you with a feeling of urgency to accomplish before Monday rolls around.

But it’s the weekend.

Rest. Listen. Ponder. Be still.

Notice.

Something small and seemingly unimportant.

Something that is unique and diverse and a tiny miracle.

Take a walk in the woods or field, or simply down the sidewalk.

Look.

Urgency will pause.

Irritation will ease.

Replaced with wonder.

Enjoy the weekend.

Take just a moment.

Go exploring! You may enjoy these previous posts.
