Grief Weary?

I am reminded of the 1991 movie, “What About Bob”, where the psychiatrist, Dr. Leo Marvin (played by Richard Dreyfuss) gives¬†a prescription to his multi-phobic client, Bob Wiley (Bill Murray): “Take a vacation from your problems.”

So today I rest…distract myself with a¬†frivolous book, a good friend and a browse through my favorite cottage shop…to give my mind, soul and body a reprieve.

Just for today.
