Walking With my Boy

So, my son decides yesterday to get up really early in the morning with me and walk with me to start the day. He is normally a night person like me and hard to get out of bed, so I was expecting the worst. Instead, he pops right up and is eager to go. Oy. So off we go and I am pleasantly surprised because I generally love walking time to enjoy God’s creation and talk to Him and just be quiet. I thought my chatty son would be a peace deterrent but instead he was pleasingly quiet with the sparce comment here or there. Lovely. So he will be joining me and we have more time together, and I thank God for that. Another happy place. Wonderful. 🙂

The Feel of the Pavement

I never look forward to walking, I confess. I look forward to playing tennis but not to getting up in the early hours and walking. Partly because I love sleeping in (I stay up late) and partly because I have to get out of bed to do it. Lol But once I do and have had my 45 minutes of walking in the morning, prating, enjoying nature, hearing and seeing the birds, feeling the sun’s warmth on my skin, I am so very glad I did. The endorphins released also give a boost of energy and happy, a natural high (the only high I have ever experienced) and my body genuinely feels better. It is good to be walking again. Still looking forward to tennis though. Lol 🙂
