The Walks

The neatest thing has been happening in the last couple days. My husband and I take our dog for a walk a couple times each day. It's always a time for us to talk about life without computers, TV, and other distractions.

Starting a couple days ago my son has joined us on our walks. It's so wonderful because there are no distractions and we get to talk about, in my opinion, what reall
y matters. My son is a nature lover and will happily discuss the birds (his favorite subject), the stormy clouds on the horizon, the different landscaping in the yards, the wind (he loves the big gusts that practically blow him over ) and a myriad other nature related things. There's nothing better than realizing what's really important and that is our family bond, him, myself and his dad. Today we planned a much needed quiet, stress free trip to the Oregon Coast. We all agreed that it would be good for all of us to just sit out on the deck and listen to the waves and breathe the ocean air.

Today I am grateful for family time, for discovering a closeness we haven't had in a long time, and most importantly for the peace of mind these walks seem to bring to my son
