A couple of weeks ago I was on a little girls trip in San Diego, Mission Bay to be more exact, we were staying in Tami’s beautiful vacation home there. When touring the place a saw this hanging in one of the rooms and I had to snap a picture right then and there, I warned Tami that this will probably end up on my blog someday… as well as in my house! I love it! It spoke to me, probably because just recently I have been traveling quite a bit and I have been feeling a tad bit guilty about it… but after reading this quote it had me thinking a little bit differently about it all.
I have been blessed with different opportunities lately to travel more than usual. Everyone has their season, for some it is when they are young, wild and free, and for others it comes later on in life. For me it has definitely come later in life. I was too busy taking care of my little family when I was young. Right now my family needs me WAY less than ever before which at times has had me feeling kind of sad, then I realize I should be happy that I have raised my boys to be able to take care of themselves! I feel like I need to take advantage of the opportunities as they come because maybe this is my season. I also feel like this season can change at any moment, so for now I am taking full advantage while I can. But that doesn’t stop me from being a normal wife and mother who feels some guilt when doing so. But after reading this quote I realize that my life is becoming that much Richer by all the traveling I have been doing lately. I know there will be a time when I can’t just drop everything and leave like I am able to right now, and I know that there will probably be a time in my life where I wont be able to physically be able to go and see all that I want to or have the funds to be able to go either or who knows what else can get in the way of it?? Life is just so unpredictable!! But one thing that nobody can ever take away from me is the precious memories I have made while doing so. From the people I travel with to the places I have been, those are some cherished treasures that have made me and my life richer than any other “things” I own in this life!
