When I decided to change my job, I wanted to be able to enjoy life more. To be more relaxed, to slow down and enjoy the little things. Today was such a day. Ernie suggested a drive to the greenhouse. Now anyone who knows me knows that I would never turn that down. It wasn't the greenhouse so much as the calm pace of the afternoon.
Ernie is really one who knows how to be in the moment and teaches me so much about that. As we are driving along, he always has his eyes peeled for sites, scenes and wildlife. Today, it was a couple of ponds on the side of the road. We got out and took pictures of the ducks, caught a frog and picked cat tails. Later, it was butterflies and birds that caught our eye. The scent of flowers, fresh rain and the trees and grass have a way of touching me to my core
Never in a rush, able to hold hands and wander, I am grateful for the lessons from my best friend. We talk about the past, what we are up to now and dreams for the future. Always knowing we are in it together, it seems so much easier to manage from the slow pace of enjoying each step along our journey together.
I lead a full life full of love, adventure and growth. Check out my latest thoughts here.
