It Was Bound to Happen


I have been gone on an unlikely but unfortunately necessary family adventure. An adventure that made me appreciate life, my blessings and my precious family. It was an adventure that caused me to grow up. Which considering my age you might think it's about time. And, it only took 3 weeks. Three weeks and a lifetime. But, I am home and I hope I never lose the lessons I learned.

"Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. "

I hope all is well with you.

It feels so good to be able to let go of the past and move on. I'm happy for you.

I hope you are okay. I know what you mean about growing up at our age - I am still waiting for it to happen to me.

Happy New Year, Lynn

I am amazed at the selfless thing you did for the past three weeks. It is hard to totally put your life on hold for that long! I know everyone is very appreciative!!
