Just two weeks left in my visit to Southern Cal! I have had an amazing time here. The weather has been a real reprieve from the heat and humidity of Sedona. Discovering the trails along the coastline of the beaches and the diversity of the terrain has strengthened my stamina and been a real pleasure to explore. The restaurants have slowed down my weight loss but I have nourished myself well and enjoyed every meal! I think I am the healthiest I have ever been and I know I am the most content and accepting of myself.
This coming week will be a time of gathering my boys together and enjoying some special family time! David will be having a birthday while here and there is so much to celebrate as a family. These days are providing some precious memories for me as a mom, wife, sister, daughter, cousin and friend. I have a whole new level of appreciation for all of the people in my life that bless me in those roles. The gratitude never ends!
All of this has been born out of the mere intent to prepare for the Camino in Spain. This is another affirmation of the long reaching benefits of setting out on this journey. While I came out to San Clemente to house/dog sit and do more physical training, it has resulted in much more. I have had time alone, enough time to continue forward on the inner aspects of this journey. (Thanks to the Seigers for asking!)
