Good Day! Woke up this morning, and for some unknown reason, thought I’d go for a walk. Not just any walk, but to one of the main streets in the area, and from there I thought to hoof it up to another main street, and come back that way to one of our bigger shopping centers. Have I been walking these days, nooooooooo but I used to walk these little hikes without a second thought. Fortunately my brain wasn’t completely out in left field, I did make arrangements with Hubby to be on standby.
Walking, means you get to take different side streets and meander through the various little communities instead of skirting them by driving along streets where the buses travel. You see the little corner stores, and the well tended lots, even little parks you didn’t know where there.
The church on the Montreal Road, I pass numerous times, (in the truck) but, even thought I see the sign, I don’t usually get to really read it.. that would be a distraction, I just know there is a sign there. Today, on foot, I was able to stop and read the message. It is a good one isn’t it. For those of you who don’t read French, it says, Forgive and Love unconditionally.
We must learn to forgive not only others, but ourselves if there is to be peace on earth. We really need to practice everyday, goodwill to one and all.
My reward for talking myself out for a walk, a cold, ice cold, black coffee, with lots of ice. Oh Yum. I called Hubby to pick me up, while I was half way on my little mini “trek” For a first time out this year, I’m happy.
Lunch, kale salad and skinless salmon. Made at home, no store dressing. Just lite mayo.
Life is good isn’t it.
