Serenity Sunday

What is it about returning from a week’s vacation that is so…..well….(what’s the best word to describe what falling off a mountain feels like?)…. Painful?

Honestly, does it have to be so darn real? I would think with all the rest and relaxation I got in a whole week of doing nothing, my batteries would be charged up and I’d be ready to tackle the world!

But, after a day of travel yesterday, I found myself pretty crabby last night. Was it just tiredness or the re-entry to reality? I am still not sure. Maybe I was just missing the beach, the water, the palm trees, the egrets….

So this morning I woke up, still slightly melancholy. I know what I need to do. Today is about me- taking it easy, helping my mom get back into her house and, if I’m feeling up to it, a bit of yard work. Also, counting my gratitudes and blessings will right my restless state of mind.

So I’ve dubbed today “Serenity Sunday”. What better way to ease back into my real life and cut myself a break?

Thanks once again to my sister Cally, who took this great picture of the beach on our last day. It brings a smile to my face and Grace to my Heart!

    Lovely beach! Read once that you need three weeks of “ordinary” days after holiday to get it together at work, being able to concentrate, and so on… Life should just be one big vacation! 🙂 Good luck!

    Sounds like you had just a wonderful vacation (which is wonderful), so I think it would be normal to be feelings kinda crabby to be back to everyday routines!! In a way, its ok to be feeling that way because it just means you had such a great time & you are returning home with wonderful memories!! ! LOL Welcome Home!

        I have a feeling that you and I might be Snow Birds one day? I’ve been thinking HARD about it since my trip!

          I am definitely a snow bird in training! Just trying to decide where I’ll spend Jan/Feb in my golden years!
