This week I went walking down to the water more than once; it soothes my soul so much.
Years ago a friend told me she was gifting her sister an indoor rock fountain to comfort her when her husband passed away. Since then I’ve thought often of how beautifully simple it is; the sound of running water as an enhancer of well-being.
While my husband may find it somewhat less relaxing than I do to spend time together by the creek, I maintain that it lifts me out of stress and into irresistible joy.
I need it. I have a lot of concerns pressing on my mind these days, and I am grateful for this simple form of escape.
It feels good to smile effortlessly. That’s a gift I receive most easily in the great outdoors. Thank Heaven.
