Last week my car overheated on my way to getting it fixed. (Ugh…cars!)
I had to park it outside of Woodland Park, which was actually the perfect place for me to stop. 🙂
I remembered the Woodland Park Rose Garden, which I spent time in years ago when I lived closer to it, as it was along my walk to Green Lake.
What a beautiful garden!
After having a moment of total frustration and worry about my car, I walked across the park and entered the rose garden. Several roses were not in bloom, but the space was so peaceful, and the grounds were very beautiful. I suddenly forgot about my car, and allowed myself to relax in the moment and take in the beauty.
I was so grateful for this park, and all the care and intention given to such a special space.
After I left the park, my car had cooled off, so I carefully drove it to the mechanic. From there, I wandered through the neighborhood, ran into an old friend, grabbed a snack with her, and then she led me to more friends and I ended up having a truly fantastic day!
So much gratitude!
To the Forest!
