Taking Time to Enjoy

These past few weeks have been such a mad rush.  I feel like my brain is numb and I have been living in a haze. Which probably explains my hospital visit this morning. This morning at 4am I wake up to sooth Charlie's crying, I open my eyes and suddenly the entire room is spinning 120 mph.  I lay back down, still spinning.  I close my eyes, still spinning.  I take something for it and still spinning.  I realize that I better go into the emergency room since nothing is helping and things are only getting worse.  Finally, after being there for 3 hours, they concluded that vertigo was the root of the problem.  Thank goodness that is all it was...But as I was laying in the emergency room, I realized I did this to myself with stress.  Working too hard with not enough time for myself...

Taking time to enjoy is something everyone needs to do in order to be physically and mentally healthy.  In the midst of a busy weekend on retreat with my church at Zaca Lake, I got separated from the group on a walk.  I had a camera in my hand, and for those 10 minutes I had alone, I took full advantage of soaking in everything around me.  In that brief time I felt completely connected to God, myself and everything around me.  It was perfection.  Those moments are what I look forward to having more of...
