Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 211

Today's Daily 5:

  1. coffee with two different good friends today.  the kind of friends who offer hugs and encourage my soul.  the kind where the conversation is so gut level honest and spans so many topics that when I leave the coffee shop I find myself wondering what the people eavesdropping must have thought of us!
  2. hearing God's confirmation in a friend's words, and receiving her prayers.
  3. realizing that I needed to not have a "working lunch" today, and then coming back to work and realizing that though there is always more to do, self-care dictated that I would work for another hour to finish the most urgent, and then allow myself some time to breathe.  being able to see and know and create that time wouldn't have happened without guilt even a year ago, so tonight, as I reap the benefits of those hours of time off, I'm thankful for the lessons that have landed me here.
  4. simple meals
  5. feeling inspired by a new author (more on that later this week...)
