"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." - Albert Schweitzer
I found a new walking path in my neighborhood. It is exactly one mile from my front door to the closest end of the path (add another mile if I walk to the farthest end, and another mile if I go down all the cul-de-sac streets along the way). I have decided to make it an as-often-as-possible occurrence to walk this path. Some days I will walk, other days I will run (race my PR), and some days I will mix it up. But if it's nice and sunny out... I will go down the path!
In the past week I have enjoyed this walk four times and the last three times in conversation with some of my dearest friends. (I should dig out my bluetooth if I'm going to make this a habit!) Friends... let it be known that there is nothing better for my soul than fresh air, good conversation, and a content baby all at very the same time.
Actually... a really good worship set at church is super good for my soul, too. :)
Earlier today I texted one of the ladies I had the pleasure of catching up with last week and I said "My heart is still so full from our conversation." And it is, it really is. My cup overflows. <3
So, tonight, I just want to take a second and express my gratitude for these little moments... the refreshing times of soulful conversation, deep breaths of fresh air, and an extra dose of vitamin D. Life is so good.
