In response to a blog prompt titled “Solitude” my mind immediately went to my time at a women’s retreat at Pine Lake Camp in Eldora, Iowa. While I wasn’t alone the whole time I had many moments of Sweet Solitude. Which just happens to be exactly what I needed at that point in time.
An early morning walk around the lake was just what this busy mom and daycare provider was longing for. Rarely do I have complete quiet or total aloneness:)
Ahhhhh! Only in Iowa can corn, grass, blue sky, and clouds look so beautiful! Of course I’m partial because this is my home.
Total silence……just me and a kayak….I go back here over and over in my mind when life gets too loud and claustrophobic.
I did meet these two. They did not want to be friends and were quite happy when I turned about and headed the other direction.
Thankfully even when I’m utterly alone…..I know I’m not.
