A Camping We Will Go


We spent this past weekend camping atop a breathtaking mountain. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and  in the afternoon, what a treat. Mornings were cold and afternoons were cool and breezy.





I cannot tell you how much I'm enjoying camping, I'm positively giddy every time we head out. I'm kicking myself for not realizing the value of camping way sooner. In a world that overloads our senses daily, blurs the importance of relationships, we must make unplugging a priority. 




We have two teen daughters that are not nearly as on board with the whole experience as I'd like, but I know without any doubts, that being unplugged,  and being reminded of the simple joys and pleasures is the best we can give our children. Being surrounded by nature, connecting with family, being aware of the real,  that's what it's all about. I only wish that we would have started camping years ago. 




I looked out the window of the camper Saturday evening, and saw my husband and Matthew huddled around the campfire talking and laughing, and I was overcome with joy and a sense of contentment. That's the beauty of camping, it's filled with so many little moments of restoration. Living in this fallen world takes so much from us, camping refills the soul.

  2. This. A thousand times...all of this. I'm always reminded that the people I share my home with are MY people, and that really - I like them. :o)

    And that those few moments help make all the work worth it.
