Flowers by a Mountain Lake
Our schedules being what they may, we were able to get away for a 'weekend' to our favorite local haunt, the eastern Sierras. We had an excellent time, all in all, and were unimpressed to return to the "grind". However, due to reading a recent post elsewhere (ahem, HM) I'm reminded to be thankful for the "grind" for that is what allows us to provide for ourselves and to help others. :)
"I find that the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it--but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."
