Good morning Mintdom!
I know I do many posts on perseverance, and we need to be diligent, and focused when it comes to our health by eating right and exercising. In addition to all that, and in order to persevere, we also need rest! We need to rest our minds, spirits, and bodies. I guess that is why ‘they’ invented vacations!
“He that can take rest is greater than he that can take cities.” –Benjamin Franklin
I have to say that this is the perfect place for me to rest. I love looking out at the lake. Being near water is very restful to me. Although I am on vacation, my health remains my focus – in fact more so, and that is how it should be. I know that I cannot enjoy a vacation or anything else for that matter, if I am not healthy! Unbelievably, it is not just about looking good!
I think that Benjamin Franklin would approve of where I am taking my vacation.
This is the view of the lake to the right of the cottage. You should see how beautiful it is when there is lightening flashing during a storm – AND how loud!
My family has had a place on Grace Lake since my Grandfather built the first little hunting cabin before I was born. I have gone up and down these steps since I was a little girl, although there used to be a metal handrail and the steps were very uneven and the cement on them was crumbly. Still I ran up and down to the dock and the lake many times during the day. I sure was a mover then!
AffirMINTion: I love to rest; it recharges my batteries!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!
