These days, even as I sit and watch TV, or am resting on the couch, I find myself multitasking. I make my hands busy with a crochet project, or I am scrolling through my darn phone... it seems I hardly ever give my mind complete rest, even knowing my soul needs it.
For the past couple of months, many of our Sunday afternoons have included a trip over to my in-laws with our pool floats... to simply float. I love the feeling of the cool-ish water and the warm sunshine, and stretching my arms out, I surrender to rest. My mind empties and and I am somehow able to let go of every care, listen to nothing, and let myself be at whim to the wind. I love this time we have purposefully been carving out, practicing rest... time to be still.
How sweet to be a cloud, floating in the blue.
-A. A. Milne
