The Sunday Drive!
An automobile ride with no destination and no rush!
Is that foreign to you?
When we moved back to Oregon, from Arizona, we were hoping for a simpler life. Less big city and more nature.
AND THEN LIFE HAPPENS!
…………………..jobs, kids, bills, responsibilities, etc!
Sometimes you forget to breathe.
Then one beautiful spring day your husband comes and says lets take a drive.
Ours didn’t come on a Sunday, but it was a ride with no destination and no rush (until we got hungry…note to self next time pack a picnic!)
Looking at these pictures you might think the answer to his request “Let’s take a drive.” was an easy one. It actually wasn’t.
I was preparing to leave for a blogging conference, we have the One Room Challenge, my social media commitments, housework, and really I could go on and on and on here, but you know the drill! It was a struggle to initially say YES.
Glancing at the clock to see if this adventure can “fit” in the schedule somewhere.
But then you go down a back country road.
You breathe the air.
You stop and take a picture, and another, and another. “Oh, can we stop?” “Oh, look at that view!”
You are out of the hustle and bustle.
See the work never really ever gets done. Sometimes you just have to be okay with that.
Some items were left undone that day…like I didn’t periscope …among many other things. But I will forever remember the cool breeze, spring flower perfuming the air, the look of the cows as we inched closer, the tractors, and mountains.
Whether you have a country road to travel on or not, take a moment and just breathe. Find a moment to take that Sunday Drive…….
NO DESTINATION…………NO RUSH!
