The retreat was so…nice! Beautiful. Peaceful.
I have to admit I had huge expectations. I was expecting to be blown away with some aha moment or a burning bush, which didn’t happen. Instead, I got what I needed. My soul was covered in a balm of peace.
Just to be surrounded my nature!
The food was amazing! I slept in the top bunk, that was fun. And did a lot of walking. Much needed after eating all that amazing food. Ha!
The first night a massive thunderstorm with threats of a tornado hit our area. Rain, lightening, thunder. Awesome! And we waited it out by playing Taboo.
Saturday, I went canoeing, saw a big fish jump out of the water several times, lots of turtles, and kept an eye out for a possible alligator. Someone had seen one! But we didn’t. And then, I went zip lining for the first time ever! Unfortunately, because of the rain we couldn’t go horseback riding. Maybe another time. And I didn’t get to go swimming either, but doesn’t that look awesome?
So that was my weekend. And now I’m trying to return to reality and get Darkened Hope ready for its line edit. Didn’t take long with a kid throwing up through the night, but I am definitely appreciating these little moments more. They grow up so fast!
Have you ever gone to a retreat before? What was your experience?
Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
