Nature's Healing

Spending time with nature can surely heal the soul during times of stress and anxiety. Recently my wife’s cousin emailed her telling of the stress that she had been going through taking care of her elderly parents and the way my wife responded to her brought tears to my eyes and I felt that I had to share this with everyone. When they were young they spent lots of time at their grandmother’s home in the country. A time filled with happiness that my wife tells her to go back to……

“Hang in there! When you get home go sit where it is quiet and think about us when we were kids at MoMo’s house in the country. We would run so carefree in those fields. We just went where the wind took us. No stress, no worry. Just us and nature at our feet waiting for us to explore and conquer. Go there and remember. I promise, you will feel the weight of the world lift off of your shoulders and it will be replaced with the abundance of joy that filled our lives then. I went back there many a time---and to tell you the truth it was very hard to come back to reality. But I knew in my heart that it would always be there for when I needed to go back. Back to the happiness that we always found there at MoMo’s house in the country. I love you.”
