It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 1, Page 24, Book 13
A healthy mind has an easy breath.
As I took a deep breath the other day, I thought about how good it made me feel. And very often if I breathe deeply when I'm up set, it will calm me down. To take a breath is to live, yet we very often forget about what a blessing it is.
More than one time in my life I've almost forgotten to breathe. Those moments when the air seemed to be sucked right out of me. There've been times too that I couldn't simply get enough air. The fresh air in the country on a spring morning smells so good you just cannot breathe it all in.
There are some days that my breathing is more huffing and puffing when I've made too many trips up and down the stairs here. But I'm still breathing and I'm so thankful for it.
