Rest reminder

I am so grateful for my beautiful wooden REST reminder. Rest doesn’t come naturally for me. I think this is why I knew I needed this word in my life this year. I am easily drawn away from rest by busyness and tasks and feel guilty just sitting and resting.

The first part of summer took me on a different path where rest wasn’t much of an option but this last week, I have been reading on the deck, sewing, playing in my garden, eating lots of vegetables and berries, and getting to the trail for daily walks. I am hoping these restful pursuits will linger as I return to work in about 10 days.
