Thank heavens for girlfriends, and loved ones who are "upstream" of us - the people who recognise the warning signs that are often so subtle, we can't see them for dust. Friends who can see that in your pursuit of balance, you have lost yourself in the process. I think it's called "TRYING TOO HARD". April was my month for filling the tank, and once again dabbling in things that feed the soul, and in turn May has been the month where I seem to be reaping the rewards of remembering to follow the joy and the bliss, and to do more of the letting, than the getting...
I'm more of a green pastures person than a mountain person, but our camping trip to Hlalanathi Caravan Park put the beauty of the Drakensberg mountains into a new light for me - I'm a slow learner I guess, but never before has it's beauty been so apparent to me as it was on this trip, where we were out in the elements, and in the midst of it all. Years ago I never would have believed myself to be a camper, but to be living in the outdoors, (sans that flat iron and hair dryer - EISH!), and to see our children RELISH being outdoors from early in the morning till late at night, just makes you want to keep coming back for more.... The sunsets were breathtaking....A river runs through it.....the river was every childs DREAM, and the VIEW from our campsite and the park itself was every adults..
Seriously spoilt with our own ablutions and kitchen with lapa area...luxury camping, but camping nontheless!
The girls doing...wait for it.......ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!
