It’s always nice to take a pause. From the winter. From routine. From waking up early every day. We did just that, with a visit to our family in Florida. We walked with herons, played with sticks, explored nature in the rain, kicked a bunch of stones, walked on ocean piers, saw warm sunsets, swam with dolphins, collected shells (and threw back a LOT with critters in them), appeared to levitate at times, did a lot of reading, got new sunglasses, and enjoyed each other and the warm weather. When we returned, I think we all had a better appreciation for our lives back home, even the mundane. It’s always nice to take a pause.
