This week has been good, really good. Nothing major has happened that necessarily calls for celebration but there have been several of those sweet life moments that we all could use more of. I’ve been able to really spend time in the peaceful moments and am reminded that God has my life and will never let me fail, that is so special. It’s too easy to get caught up in the everyday craziness and neglect our mental health. Just as important as our physical health is our mental and spiritual health. It should be treated with care and certainly never be forgotten. Recently, Wiley and I have been making a point to go on a walk everyday. Not for physical exercise, but mental clarity. We are able to speak about our thoughts and feelings and really appreciate just being together with no distractions. We’ve always LOVED being outside and during our walks we are able to see what really is around us. We notice trees that we never knew existed and get to talk about what we like about each house we pass. It has become really important for us to do this and has strengthened just about every aspect of our lives.
The coconut cream on top of this week is that I made a new friend who was put into my life at just the right time. After our first date, I just knew she was one that I could cherish forever. I walked away with a big smile in my heart! Not only do we have all kinds of things in common but we have both been living in the same season for two years. We shared our ups and downs, our hopes and our sorrows, and I just know God sent her to me and said “you are here to be for each other”. How cool is that? I am often reminded that life is just such a beautiful mess, it is so nice to have someone in the same situation to share it with. It’s not everyday that you make friends like this so I am definitely grateful for this particular day!
In addition to all of these sweet moments in my week, there is a particularly sweet dessert recipe here that I think you are going to love. This Vegan Peach Galette couldn’t be more simple and if you’re trying watch your waste line but want something sweet, this is it! If you have frozen peaches, they will work just as well in this recipe which means you can make it all year long.
