I had an opportunity to make a quick trip to one of our family’s happy places. Only one son could join us, but our dog made her first trip. Walking the beach, or anywhere outdoors observing God’s beautiful creation is relaxing and rejuvenating for me.

Where is your happy spot, dear friends? Where do you go to relax and rejuvenate? It does not have to be a trip; it can simply be your favorite chair or your yard. It is simply essential for our mental and spiritual health that we find our happy spot, and visit there as often as we can.

And here is a tip: Pick at least one happy spot right where you are. It is important to find a place where you can relax. The woods right behind my house is far easier to visit than a beach across the border. Both work, but the woods with its trails is doable far more often than this quiet beach town we so enjoy.

“See” you next week!
