I finally bundled up and went out for a walk this afternoon.. Normally, I would put my ipod on and get moving. Today, I left the electronics at home, including my camera and leisurely strolled along the snowmobile paths, stripping off my scarf, gloves and hood. What an incredibly beautiful day!
My thoughts drifted to past times when I hit a wall and finally slowed down. I feel sometimes like people are speeding by me on either side and I am barely crawling. Why do I fight the stillness? and the illness? It feels like a losing battle these days.
Anyway, I am taking a break from blogging for awhile. Life is full of unanswered questions for me and speaking in any form is a bit too much right at the moment. This may be for a day, a week or a month. I just need to de-clutter for a bit. I've moved away from facebook too.
I will continue to read my favorite blogs because I enjoy them. I just need to lie fallow for a time.

Our smiles got even bigger when we got home and discovered a package in the mail from our daughter in New Mexico. It was a photo album they had 2-day aired, not knowing we were away for the weekend. In it was the sonogram picture announcing our new grandbaby due in August! We called them and celebrated over the phone. This is the best news I've heard in a long time :) The only problem is that now I am missing my New Mexico family even more :(
I wouldn't want to leave out this new baby's big sis, who is 14 now. I had a dream about her this week. In my dream she was about two years old with a head full of curls. How fast those years have flown! I love you sweet girl and know you will make the best big Sis ever.

Maine is a long state. We live in the northern part, close to the Canadian border. It takes five hours to drive to the southern part of the state where our family lives.
On Saturday, we ate a picnic lunch outside on the lawn. Unbelieveable weather for March. They have no snow and we have a lot less than usual. I keep hoping winter doesn't arrive in April. :)

In quietness and confidence is your strength.
There are times when our bodies and souls just need to rest.
