Greetings from the cornfields now, but recently came from the beautiful mountains! It was so peaceful there, while surrounded by beauty. More than the beauty of the mountains was the beauty of the love received when first arriving. Have not seen some of my husband’s dear relatives for 2 years and a lot has happened in those years.
As the quote above talks about the depth of winter, I have felt those depths in the past 2 years. His dear Aunt knew those depths and to feel the love in her arms when wrapped around me in a tight hug brought the warm, invincible feeling of summer to my heart.
We took about a 4 mile hike through the woods. The weather was perfect and the trees provided a lot of shade overhead as we walked under them. The path wasn’t steep, just a nice, relaxing hike as we listened to the sounds of the water flowing in the creek. The sound of running water is so soothing to me, I wish we had a creek in our back yard. My ever helpful nephew informed me that I could just turn on our water faucet at home and listen to the sound of the running water!! Ha Ha! Not exactly the same I told him.
This vacation has been filled with love and laughter so far and that is the perfect ingredients for maintaining an Invincible Summer inside you, even if winter is still going on! Hoping you all are feeling Summer inside your heart today!
