As the green carpet comes slowly back sprouting "baby grass green" color, I notice the rustle of wind through bare branches. 

I had a Time Out short visit with a friend, much needed.  In our breathing space, our short vacation, we chatted, smiled, and ate home baked cookies and chocolate.  Dolores handed me a card filled with sun and flowers:

"It's not so much where you're going~ 
but who walks with you on the journey...."

Then we sampled the wrapped chocolates, each with a message.  My favorite was the dark chocolate with almonds.

As we unwrapped the goodies, and read the notes, we were amazed and delighted at the results.

"Stretch your Body~
Stretch your Mind."

"Take a Deep Breath."

"Follow Your Instincts."

Big YES~

And~(drum roll)

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, 
The more there is in life to celebrate."
