--Furrow, Number 177
Days on retreat. Recollection in order to know God, to know yourself and thus to make progress. A necessary time for discovering where and how you should change your life. What should I do? What should I avoid?
I am just back from a peaceful three-day retreat filled with quiet reflection, spiritual reading and resolution-making. (Oh, and lots of sleeping, too.)
I do this every year and absolutely love it. I cannot recommend it enough. If you don't already do this regularly in your life, make time for it! I come back refreshed, clear-headed, calm, and ready to make positive changes in my life.
I am renewed in my determination to be the best mother I can be to my children, reconciled with my illness and its place in my life, sure that the path I am attempting to follow is the right one.
Peace. Cheerfulness. Hope.
This is good stuff.
