seeking balance

IMG_5615-0.JPG

Balance can be so elusive.  Most of the time, I don’t think about it.  But when stress begins to seep out of those corners where it has been stuffed, seeking balance becomes a primary activity.

This weekend the balance seeking options were plenty:

a long run with a running buddy,

some time to play with fabric and yarn,

a family gathering to drink iced tea, eat good food, and catch up,

enjoying the annual youth service to hear about how mission trips, youth group, and camp are impacting the lives of kids in our congregation,

sharing the work of moving mom with my sister and husband,

going to a much needed yoga class,

a simple salad and a glass of wine for dinner.

Thanks to Karen for the motivation to think about stress busting.
