I was on my way to the grocery store and passed by one of my favorite renewal spots, the wetlands. My soul said, "Please may we stop." My ego replied, "But, I’ll get all hot and sweaty then when I am at the grocery store I will run into someone I know."
They argued for awhile until I turned the car around to the wetlands. As soon as I got out of the car a cool breeze blew any heat from my face. A breeze continued to cool as I passed the brightest blue butterfly, a family of ducks, the swans, and an abundance of wildflowers. I smiled as I viewed the pond and the surrounding greenery.
I felt happy and at peace.
