Good morning, Mintdom!
Leading a healthy lifestyle is not only the physical; it is also about being healthy in my spirit, mind and my heart. This weekend, I had my fill of all three! It was beautiful – not only did I get to spend it with my two sisters, but also the three of us drove to Richmond to visit GREAT friends and attend their church. It was one of those times where I felt like I was really living my life. .
This weekend filled me up in so many ways. On the way to Richmond, we ran into a torrential rainstorm. The rain came down in sheets! Not only did it slow us down; it showed me the power of Nature, and how little control we have over life. Saturday night we met with our friends for a fabulous dinner. It was great food and even better conversation. Sunday, my sisters and I ‘bloomed’ with coffee and went down for a delicious breakfast. Our friends picked us up for church. The message was on the book of Ruth in the Bible. After church, we our friends took us to their home for a fabulous lunch. Their home was so warm and inviting. I think almost everything in it had special meaning to them. They are truly special themselves. She is a philosopher and a writer. He is a musician and they both work together in real estate.
Laughter and deep conversation filled the car on the way home with my sisters. It was such a precious time for me, and one that I will treasure for years to come. We are very fortunate to have each other. I think we all need be purposeful about taking time out of our busy lives for moMINTS like this. I know that when I am in the throes of work or keeping up with my life, I will have this time to draw on. Can you remember a special time that you have had – a time that you treasure? If not, my strong suggestion is that you take some time out and create your own treasure.
“God gave us memories that we might have roses in December.” ~J.M. Barrie, Courage, 1922
AffirMINTion: I make time for precious moMINTS!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!

My ‘uncle’ Bob and his friend Lauren took care of me while my mom was away and even though I missed my mom, I had a GREAT time. My mom says that it is nice to have treasured moMINTs to remember… AND I LIKE IT!
Life is Minty Fresh!
