Need a break … from the stress of life?
Need a break … from the news and threat of war?
Need a break from … busyness … anger … fear … confusion … sense of helplessness … something else?

When that happens for me what happens is to intentionally open my eyes and heart and to consciously seek beauty around, above, below, within
helps in some way … like these cascading blue pansies in the yard with their smiling faces and open mouths singing their sweet “Welcome Spring!” song.

May renewal come our way through the gifts of Mother Nature when it’s “time for a break.”
