    My Hammock broke on me yesterday…


    I hung it myself if that tells you anything.

    Nick said he was going to hang it this time, I will let him.

    The rope I bought to hang it broke.

    In my defence it was made for that purpose so clearly not my fault…

    Of course it had been frayed for a bit.


    If only this big pile of leaves was under the hammock at the time.

    May all your falls have soft landings today.

    And may you not swing on any hammocks with questionable suspension…

    All I wanted was Nick and a walk in the woods…

    For my birthday all I really wanted was my husband to be home and a walk in the woods.

    And that is what I got.

    Being in the woods always makes everything else go away.

    When things press in around me the woods push them back.

    I always thought church should be outside instead of in a stuffy building.

    I guess rain and other bad weather might discourage people from coming though…


    I am a recovering wimp.

    I would rather sit all day and read then be productive.

    Or walk through the woods instead of driving…anywhere.

    I am lazy basically.


    So when I hear of a new challenge in front of me, I am not one of those people that rushes to meet it (do those people even exist?).

    Instead I want to curl up in a ball until it goes away.

    My little pep talk I am giving myself?

    “I can do hard things.”

    And now you know. I am just a recovering wimp trying to pull my weight.

    But wishing I was eating eating chocolates while reading a book…
