My Four Things

                                      Oh how I LOVE you Downtown Fernandina Beach!

While reading my friend's blog I was intrigued by her post from yesterday. It got my mind to pondering, What are the 4 things you need in your life to stay balanced and happy and lovable?

Here they are in the sort of, short and sweet version.....because I am sleepy:)

1. Vibrant faith and God's Word. I do not do enough Bible reading, but every time I do....I always get a reminder or learn something that I need to refresh, remind and reawaken my life. It is nice to be reminded of a higher and better way to live and think.

2. Family and Friends. I am SO thankful for the special family in my life. We are a large group and I would not have it any other way. My friends are amazing, I am blessed to have them and I am thankful for their love and everlasting support.

3. Travel. Near or far....I need to go. I am seeing more and more that I get a special joy from travel, from new and old places. Food, Experiences, People, Scenery.....give it all to me please!

4. Rest. Typically this meshes into what I love to call "me time". My mind runs fast and gets a lot done. But it calls for rest often. However, I don't have to be snuggled in bed to get rest. No, I can give my mind and body a break more often than you would think. It's the great part about knowing your own personal limits and then sticking to them.
