Last weekend I went to a ladies retreat. It was very nice to get away from everything and not have to cook or clean or supervise. The retreat was held at Sunnyside retreat center beside a lake. I only had to go down a feet steps to be right beside the water. The sun was warm, the water lapped at the shore. I sat and thought. I sat and enjoyed peace and quiet. I even did some story planning.
Accommodations were nice. I had shared a bathroom with another lady. I felt like I had always known this lady. We just hit it off. Thanks, Marilyn.
The retreat allowed plenty of time for visiting, meditating, walking or playing games. Whatever suited your fancy.
I read a bit from one of my books and talked a little about writing. The guest speakers were Rick and Kathleen Gibson who spoke on their journey of triumph over West Nile Virus. Kathleen has written a book. Buy it and read it if you get a chance. It’s a very inspiring story.
I had a great weekend.
Then returned to normal life.
But I suppose normal isn’t too be scoffed at. I’ve had weeks that weren’t normal so I know the truth of that.
However, the weekend was a chance to regroup and refill. Something we all need from time to time.
