Reading, gardening, and praying are three of my favorite activities. It’s in these moments I find my happy place. A nice solitary activity I find myself drawn to in my spare time. It seems sometimes we don’t get enough of these moments. Fortunately I have been blessed with the time to engage in these activities often. These rare moments where it seems as though for either a brief moment or entirety you’re solely focused on something of your choice.
Reading has been a passion of mine since a very young age. Whether it’s fiction, non-fiction, a mystery, educational, it was something that you never forget. It’s in these moments that you feel so connected to something else and has remained a #1 ranking for things to do in my spare time. Education is something I feel you can never get enough of and reading keeps your mind sharp and ready to learn, this is something I have also instilled in all of my children.
I began gardening in the summer of 2003, and I haven’t looked back since. I spent more time at Home Depot that summer than anywhere else. There’s nothing better than starting your morning in the yard wearing a straw hat and digging in the dirt. My love for planting runs deep, the happiness and feeling of accomplishment you get when you notice your tree is growing, or your flowers are blooming. The yard is truly my happy place where I can get lost for hours and show others my taste of design.
Last but not least is prayer, something that is so very dear to my heart and every aspect of my life. Prayer takes place at all times throughout the day, but in my spare time I could spend hours. There’s no greater feeling than sitting and talking with my lord and I love to share it with others. It’s a lasting sentiment to my days and comforting peace I have. Prayer keeps you strong and prepared to deal with everyday life, and I hope many others know the power of it.
These are just three of my favorite things to do in my spare time....
