Blessed are the ones who are happy with whom they are.”

Beautiful photos, Florence. The lake images are so calming and peaceful, even in a photograph.
I’m still meditating on your earlier post about crossing things off the to-do list. That’s so hard for us type-A folks.

Hi Karen, I’m really glad you liked the photos. It was a calming and peaceful place. I remarked one day last week that I felt like I was finally remembering who I was. On a different note, those lists really can get the best of us. And I imagine your list is quite full these days! It’s really good to hear from you. I have your youngest in my prayers and you, as well.
