I just finished my Pilates video where they end by having you imagine yourself in a hammock. It is so relaxing I found it difficult to get up off of the floor afterwards. I probably could have just slept the night right there. Aaaaahhhh. It amazes me how good some simple stretching and breathing exercises make my body feel (check out My Lyme Story Here). My mind is free from duty or tasks or projects going through my thoughts for just one hour. I really should be doing this every day!
Anyways, as I lay there I dreamed of summer days. The warm sun was shining on my face, and my toes dug into the warm green grass. I felt peaceful. Oh how I yearn for summer. I’ve been feeling a bit secluded lately. It can be difficult being stuck in the house day in and day out for months at a time.
The gray cold winter days seem to drag on and on. I miss being at the playground and letting the kids run free. I also miss finding new and old friends there to visit with. It is really nice chatting with another mom while our kids pal around on the playground equipment which has become a pirate ship in their imaginations.
My kids and I had a glimpse of those fun times today. Not outside in the sunshine, but inside a nice church where we were invited to a birthday party. I met some new friends and so did my kids. The women I met were Christian homeschooling mommas too. I’m pretty excited to have made the connections and with people that I may be able to have playdates and/or get-togethers for our kiddos as well. It was like a breath of fresh air. My kids were having such a blast with their friends that I got to visit and relax.
Once I got to talking to everyone and the ice was broken it was almost like being in the hammock – easy and relaxing. It was honestly an answer to prayer. I didn’t really go to the party with expectations of making lasting friendships, but I hope that I did. It’s nice to “do life” with other people. God never meant for us to be alone. He has opened this door for me and I am grateful. It’s like a warm breeze in the dead of winter. Hopefully more of that is coming my way very soon.
