With Wayne in the hospital, I needed to relieve some stress on my day off. I took the collies on a 4 mile hike on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) which I almost live on. It was 55 degrees outside,a slight breeze and so quiet in the hills you could hear a pin drop. The mountains are my church.
There is a pulpit-like stand on the trail that has an enclosed box with a pen and pad for hikers who use the trail to write down their musings. The last entry said, "This is my first time on this trail. I'm excited and looking forward to talking to God." :0)
I scratched any upcoming trials I had entered for this year. Time to concentrate on family. Wayne is very sick. He will be in the hospital for a week or more. :0( I need to continue working. Thankfully, I work in the hospital where he is receiving good care. Friends in Green Valley have been putting my sheep up for me when I work. I work 12 hour shifts, so I don't get home until hours after dark. The dogs are tolerating their kennel arrangements (topped kennel runs), but I still feel badly for them when I work. But, at least the sheep are out of night time predators harms way.
Be kind to ALL....everyone is fighting their own battles. Remember that.
