The Importance of Self Care

A quiet moment on Lake Okanagan

Sometimes we need alone time. Time for our brains to process events. Time for our hearts to heal, and time for our souls to seek sanctuary and peace. 

Today (almost) every member of our home attended a community lunch event. They enjoyed a soup lunch, dessert, and entertainment from Grade 2 students. It was social, vibrant and noisy. It delighted our visiting household members.

However one member of our household just didn't feel up to that kind of activity. It just did not suit her mood. So instead, she and a caregiver packed up their lunch and went to Sun Oka Beach.  It was a beautiful day, they walked the lakeshore, wondered at the miracles of nature and found the serenity that they were both looking for. 

The day was a success for everyone.
