I got together with two friends and colleagues tonight. One arrived bundled warmly in a hat, coat and mitts; the other with a light jacket. I smiled. Only here on the prairies do we understand cold. I was so grateful for the warm weather and snowless fall thus far. What a blessing!

Normally Friday night is my hunker down night. Stay home, veg, and recover from a busy week but I was enticed out by these friends and so grateful for the deep conversation punctuated with wild rounds of laughter. My soul feels so much happier.

How do you recover when stress has gotten the best of you?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
