We all need respite, a time to relax, a time to get away. We need time that is free of therapy, tests, school, etc. Ralph and I had very few opportunities to have time away when we were in the trenches of raising children with autism, so we took our time away for refreshing whenever we could find it.

Sometimes respite is an afternoon of fishing

A walk by the lake. (I had to drive to get here)

A project (they say handiwork like knitting or quilting reduces blood pressure)

Or experiencing beauty…for a few minutes.
