As I wrap up the last day of my vacation (I’ve been out of town, visiting a close friend), I have been deeply reminded about the refreshment and joy that can be found by simply resting.
The focus on these regular “staycations” with my friend has always centered on relaxation: We simply talk, eat, rest, meet up with another friend or two, and watch a few good movies. There is no other agenda during this time, and both of us (as introverts) walk away from the weekend feeling relaxed and energized. Such refreshment is a great blessing!
Further, I have slept incredibly well while on vacation (the bed in my friend’s guest room is incredibly comfortable), and it’s been nice to wake up each day feeling so well rested.
So for these and other related reasons, I am filled with gratitude today. I wish you all a good week, filled with meaningful opportunities to rest and recharge, when needed.
