The family spent a few days in the hot sun during spring break this past week. We all had a great time, and it really makes you yearn for warm weather at home. While out and about I spent a little time with a dear friend I see only every few years. She has been experiencing some tough medical issues, but seems to have quite an optimistic spirit. The time together was one of my highlights of the time off.
Days with no cell phone...email...blog...television...news...or any other type of communication portal is quite invigorating. Sometimes you do not realize how your inner optimism gets absorbed...zapped...squelched every day. Time to multiply the internal optimism is quite healing.
