Becky, Me & Pam
We 3 crazy fun friends, took the day to celebrate the Autumn Exquinox and headed to Itasca State Park. Wow, it was a fabulous day, filled with fun side-stops, laughter and treats.
Of course, we splashed (I started it), and walked across our beautiful Mississippi River …
We spent some time in the woods, replenishing our Spirits, and took moments away … in our own directions for quiet reflection.
One of my favorite poems kept echoing in my heart as we wandered through the forest. You can join me … it’s best when you go slow … very, very slow …. pause and breathe …
Trees … by Joyce Kilmer.
I think that I shall never see, a poem as lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear, a nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree.

It was a fantastic day, indeed! Nothing like being swooped up in Mother Nature to see and feel the miracles our earth holds for us. What a gift to all of us.
Thanks for joining me on the journey.
My Encouragement to You: Take some time to get your feet in the grass, the pine needles, feel the sand stick between your toes – the stones that will give you a great reflexology treatment! Lean against a tree. Pause and see all the beautiful leaves, each floating in the breeze, waiting to be discovered by an appreciative eye – their gift to you. Embrace single moments and breathe with a grateful heart.
Blessings and Love,
