It doesn’t take much to slow down.A secondhand throw tossed onto a secondhand rocker.The warm glow of a reading lamp and at least one good book, maybe two.An inviting slow-down spot beckons us to stop for a minute and catch our breath or catch some z’s.Inside the home or outside, a slow-down spot reminds us that life can be richer—and healthier—if we allow for a pause now and then.This weekend, may you find a few minutes to rest, read, and reflect.

I love this Ann – a perfect spot to slow and rest. I have a little corner like that. It is a blessing.
Is it the spot in your header? The wicker chair with a fluffy quilt tossed on it? If so, I think you’ve done very well–it beckons.
If you have more than one spot, all the better!

A slow-down place…that’s a great name for those spots that beckon us to stop, to rest….to be a being instead of a doing.
Thanks for reminding me of that, Ann, as I move into vacation week.
