Quilting is not the only thing that soothes my soul. After the past few busy weeks, I needed to take a day just for me for a change. On beautiful days I'm always eager to get out and enjoy nature and am lucky to live close to a great lake with a beautiful shoreline. Sure, I'd prefer the ocean, but this is where I am and it's good enough. Even a few hours spent walking quietly through a path in the woods and along the shore is enough to restore my soul.
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
My favorite part - I turn around a bend and then see the water. I swear my heart leaps up every time.
To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.
She always helps me remember to smell the flowers! Next time. I promise I'll take her with me next time.
