Natural Therapy

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh......isn't that how most people feel when they have a great retreat time in nature? I just returned from a week in the Colorado mountains. The beauty and spendor of the mountains, pine and aspen trees and the swiftly flowing water over the huge boulders can literally take my breath away, and bring tears to my eyes!! I am awed by the beauty, but like most people life gets busy and I forget about taking time to slow down.

While I was in the mountains I spent some time with a long time friend and got to renew and refresh our relationship. It was a wonder to see how each of us had weathered this journey we call life and how much we both had changed because of it. It reminded me how life really is, for me, all about relationships. Without them life would be meaningless. Not that our jobs and other things we do aren't important, but that without some close realtionships all of that would be pretty unfullfilling.

I hope you are having a GREAT summer and take some time to renew and refresh yourself!
