This past weekend was perfect for me. Why? I didn’t go anywhere elaborate, or do anything exciting. Instead I spent it sitting on my father’s porch. He has a great porch with rocking chairs, and a swing, and even a picnic table on it so you can do whatever you would like while relaxing and enjoying the summer.
The temperature was perfect – sunny and in the lower eighties (Fahrenheit) . And NO humidity. There was a breeze and if that wasn’t enough, my dad has a ceiling fan that can be turned on to circulate air.
I sat for two whole days on that covered porch, reading though my final proof of FOR BETTER OR FOR WOLF. And I snacked on ice cream and some other yummy dishes as well. At one point, I sat in a rocking chair reading a book for pleasure as the breeze blew across the porch. At that moment, I realized how perfect it was. No fanfare. No lights and whistles. No deadlines. Just peace.
And it also made me appreciate that there is perfection in simplicity. My wish for you is that you find that moment of perfection, of simplicity and enjoy it. We don’t get a lot of those, so savor it when it happens!
