…I’ve been up in the mountains since Friday at noon, so technically, yes, I could have posted prior to leaving, but I was a bit busy. So, what was going to be an overnight retreat for about a dozen ladies turned into me and two other girls staying an extra night which has turned into the three of us staying a third night. We didn’t plan this, but God went ahead and sent a sizable snow storm and icy roads…apparently a sign that we aren’t rested enough (smiley face). We’ll head home first thing in the morning once the DOT can get the roads cleared. The house we are stuck at has no cable or Internet, so we ventured to town to an Internet cafe and, so, here I sit. We probably could drive back down to Denver today but once we get on the road we’ll meet up with all the ski traffic and that just doesn’t sound appealing.
Meanwhile, the three of us are enjoying each others company, the beautiful surroundings, great conversation, chocolate,coffee, movies, cards and naps. Two of us are moms so are feeling a bit responsible for not being at home, but since we have fantastic husbands, we know the kids will be just fine. Our other friend just has a fantastic husband, so we know he’ll be fine, too.
Our time this weekend has been refreshing. Sometimes we need to steal away from our day to day to get new vision and fervor to keep on doing what it is we do everyday. I’m grateful for this time. I’ll post again on my daily routine as soon as I get back to civilization. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the simplicity.
