Finding my happy place...

This is my happy place.
It's called Lake Daniel's and it's at the end of a three hour walk in the south Island.

Right now, I'm struggling to keep a happy place in my heart,
and not feel overwhelmed by end of year study,
packing the house, sick kids and David's work situation.

If I'm a bit quiet for a bit here,
it's because I've shut my eyes to the mess and chaos
and I'm breathing in the sweet west coast air
and listening to the water slap against the shore of Lake Daniels.

  8. oh sending you big hugs Deb. You have so much on your plate ... I know what some of that feels like and my fingers are tightly crossed for you that there's plenty of good ahead too. And I know that even though studying is total crap sometimes and I often wonder what on earth I'm doing and why I just didn't get a job in a supermarket, I also know that it is terribly empowering and that you will do really well. Keep on keeping on dear!


Thanks so much for dropping by. I love to hear from you and I want you to know that I really appreciate each comment!!
