Mississippi Headwaters!  

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,

Namaste
