Florida and Me

29 Mar

I swam and stared at the ocean.

I clapped with the others on the beach after the sunset.

I read books outside and walked the dog barefoot.

I overdid the tanning oil, but got my base tan for the season.

I ate seafood and swayed with the man playing the steel drum and made jokes about coleslaw with my mom and dad and grandma.

I drank Starbucks instead of home-brewed coffee.

And somehow it was all just what I needed.

Rested.
Refreshed.
Energized.

Lord let the palm trees, rolling waves and sun rays seep past my skin and settle into my heart as peace that comes with me everywhere!
