“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” – Henry David Thoreau
I believe this with all my heart. I practice it. Now I have to admit that I don’t wake up every day full of energy and wanting to walk. There are days I grumble at least a little. But once I get out there, watch the sunrise, smell the fresh air, feel the cool air on my skin and begin a conversation with Father God and Mother Earth it indeed does become a blessing.
I also practice health living and sometimes I can get a little obsessed with getting in those steps and really moving. But I have to remind myself that the morning walk isn’t a physical fitness walk. It is a time of communion that blesses the whole day.
