Quiet moment









We struggle, we push, we strive, and pine. And then every once in a while we slip into the cool calm of an eddy and rest for a moment or two. These quiet moments are invaluable. It's been an intense few weeks and I feel like my reserves are about used up. But, today, well today is a special day and I'm able to rest for my moment or two.

I wish you a quiet moment, whether it's granted to you or you take it!

XOXO
