Yesterday was an especially stressful day for me. I won't bore you with the details in this blog, cause this isn't about the stress so much as it is about the stress reliever... my fire pit! Never mind that yesterday's temp was over 100*! Last night on my way home from work I stopped and bought one cord of firewood. I had planned for it and logged my food for it. With the daylight and the stress of the day out of sight... I lit a fire in my fire pit and spent an hour and a half of glorious time with my family roasting wieners and marshmallows! It was AMAZING!!!
Once we had all had our fill and the kids (ok, they are adults, but still kids) had had enough and went inside I sat alone with God for a good half hour watching the fire burn out and having a nice chat. The reasons (circumstances) for the stress are still very much "here", but I slept better last night than I have in a while. I feel rested and alive and ready to face the day! Ah, so nice!
I told the kids if they ever need an idea for a gift for me or ever just want to put a smile on my face, bring me some firewood!!! So relaxing!!!
