We had a wonderful camping getaway. We are so blessed to live minutes away from the rugged beautiful wilderness. God is always so apparent when you look out on the lake and see the shorelines with the reflections of the mountains shining through. The beauty of life is indescribeable...fragile-like, awe inspiring.
We took our canoe and paddled and spent alot of time on the water. Pure serenity. It was amazing. During the afternoons we'd explore the hiking trails. (The only downfall was our inadequate supply of bug repellant. We all got butchered with bites!)At night we'd sit around the fire telling tales, singing songs and listening to the "night creatures".
It was so nice to get away. Reflect. Count our blessings....(and we have many.)
I came home feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. Tomorrow it will be a year from when my dad first went into the hospital in Kitimat. His anniversary of his death is slowly approaching and I feel like I'm going to come undone.
My wonderful friend Cheryl wrote this tonight on her blog, and it made me cry:
"Life is too short to worry about having to be someone you aren't when you are around people that don't bring out the best in you. Friends, good friends, should see you for who you are and always want the best for you - and help you find that for yourself. My friends - I love you lots."
This is the truth. For my friends that believe in me, love me, and stand by me, thank you.
I hope you all can stand on nature's shoreline and take in this majestic beauty of life.
