r is for...
Renewal of me.
Yesterday I stepped out onto the beach in the early hours of the morning... while the moon was still high in the sky. I was greeted by a splashing dolphin... a few osprey searching for breakfast... a snowy egret darting into the gulf... and sandpipers racing the tide. I was alone with my thoughts... and took time to breathe in... and out. I listened to the roar of the surf... and enjoyed the passing breeze. Just me... just living. After a bit I plopped down in the sand and chatted with my Mom on the phone... happy to invite her in on my time. We laughed... we loved... our Mother's Day celebration couldn't have been any more than it was in that moment. And then it was just me again... refreshed in the morning... renewed. Whatever else happens this day... it is well with my soul... I am renewed and ready to take on the world.
