I am coming off an extended time off. Me, at the beach, oceanfront for the month of June. I checked out of my regular life. I spent days enjoying sand and surf, playing with my grandson, enjoying leisurely chats with my son and daughter-in-law, laughing, laughing, laughing with my best friend, and fun time husband sans distractions. Then everyone dispersed. They went back to work and their busy lives.
I was left to just be. No car and unplugged.
I had the privilege of lots and lots of time to eat, sleep, walk, and read at my leisure.
I devoured Revenge Wears Prada (follow up to The Devil Wears Prada). A wonderful beach-read that required no brain-drain.
perfectly at peace,
having clarity of thought,
and overflowing with gratitude for my life,
my family, my friends and all of my blessings.
June was my month of pure joy.
What a gift!
