As the time grows nearer for our trip to end we laughed and reminisced with pictures and videos of our adventures last night. It has truly been a good adventure. We have done so many things. Fixed some things for my daughter...Laughed much. That has been so much fun for me...the belly laughter...time away from things that seem to weigh be down....time to adventure and see new things, make new memories etc. I truly feel refreshed and rested.
We are off to Segway today. We have taken so many adventures. The Selby botanical Gardens were just gorgeous yesterday. The weather was so beautiful and the flowers and orquids were so gorgeous and unique. The views were breathtaking. Such a perfect day...with beauty all around us. So thankful for such a beautiful day. Memories and pictures I hope to remember and hold close to my heart.
Went to the jetties after dinner. didn't have much time...but saw a couple of dolphins playing and watched after the sunset of people fishing, the waves coming in, the pelicans searching for dinner. All just seemed right with the world. I know it's not...but the ocean brings such peace to me...calms my inner spirit.
This trip with good friends has brought calm to my soul. Recharged me to get back and go again. I am so thankful God for this time away and the refreshment I feel from it. I hesitate to step back on the crazy hectic pace we keep.
Somehow I knew I needed this time away. Not sure how often or if we will be able to get away much in the future with overseeing care of Mom. As she slowly slips away we will need to keep a close eye on her.
I know some of my frustration is my job. Still struggling with whether I need to change my attitude and do my job...yet will still keep looking for something and do my very best where I am. Things have changed a lot there and some of it has to be my attitude. I will do my best and trust God to work out the details.
I can't believe how the stress has eased in my neck and shoulders and in my heart. The laughter and adventure has worked wonders on me.
I have only to look at my BFF and I start laughing. The tails and stories we've amassed over the years I see in her eyes when I look at her.
Off to make it a great day with new adventures and memories to make.
