resting

I was visiting a blog and wrote this when I saw a photo of a beautiful winter tree...it prompted this mandala and I share with you the writing...
NOW I REST
I have shed my colorful coat, preparing for the winter of my life...my bark is my defense against the harshness that might lay before me...my roots are strong and will nourish me during this time...the ground beneath me, under the surface of the cold is warm and soft and it is where I will continue to grow...it is where I will be nurtured...allowing myself to be filled once again with life...but for now I rest.
Today, I rest...
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS: Will you allow yourself some resting time?

This feels like it was written by someone at peace and well-grounded, whose heart is warm and mind is patient. Mmmmmm... got a cup of hot chocolate handy?

Pattie,
I keep coming back to look at this mandala and reading your text. It is RESTFUL. Thank you!
