One of the things that I enjoyed most about my time in Minnesota was the time that we spent at Turtle Lake.  As I mentioned before, not only are my relatives amazing people for opening their home to us (in the way that only people from the Midwest can), but the lake is incredibly relaxing.  The calm and peace that I found when I was there is something that I need to be more cognizant of including into my own life.  Taking the time to unplug, put work aside, and reflect and pray is something I’m not good at.

Which clearly means that I need to practice.
