This afternoon has had a
slow and relaxed pace
a beautiful change from the craziness
that has been my life this semester.
Oh, how thankful I am for this change of pace.
This unhurried rhythm
that calls my soul to rest in peace.
Worry, doubt, fear
were not a part of my conversations today
only joy and excitement
as is the custom of those who live deliberately
who live simply
and find the blessing in each breath.
