Unfolding Perfectly

A morning of solitude!  Quite possibly the cutest little house I've ever seen!  Thank you Stacy!!

Everything I needed from this solo trip to Colorado is unfolding perfectly.
Quiet time, 
         mending broken relationships,
A perfect blend of solitude and connecting with friends and family.  

Time to be by myself,
Nobody to take care of except ME!
Time to REFLECT,
       catch up with old friends and family, 
and heal some wounds.  

Oh, and LAUGH!  
Lots of laughing. 

A retreat flawlessly planned for me. 
Amazing to see life happening just as it is meant to be.  
A seemingly random and spontaneous trip 
        is simply part of 
                  a Divine Symphony.  
And not so random at all, really.  

Waking up late to a note from my friend and the best coffee EVER!

Don't remember the last time I did this!  Heaven.  I'm a little fried today though.  Thanks Sherika.  Love you!

Now off to meet a new friend!  Jill, can't wait to see you!
