Wished You Were There

When I left last Saturday, I was exhausted, overwhelmed and nursing another broken heart. However, a few days away has helped clear my head and heal my soul. It’s amazing what an environment of unconditional Love can do for one’s state of mind.

It was the best kind of vacation. The weather was divine; a perfect clear and breezy 75-degrees every day. I ate well, got 8 hours of sleep every night and took in some exercise. No one demanded anything of me other than the pleasure of my company. I spent my days playing with two delightful 6-year olds, a funny puppy, and friends and family that I don’t get to see often enough. I lingered in bookstores, coffee shops and charming boutiques. I even allowed myself a few indulgences, including the cutest little green wool skirt and a well-preserved 1901 edition of Tale of Two Cities.

The broken heart will take a little more time to mend, but at least I feel better prepared to handle the rest of my life. Who needs expensive spa vacations in the South of France when they have loving relatives in a quaint bungalow in Central Pennsylvania?

. . . although I think I'd have had more sex in France!
