So between last weekend seeing my granddaughter and this weekend seeing my grandsons, my next trip out of town should be to see my daughter in FL for a weekend and then once my son gets home from the service and heading to Idaho, probably a trip there and that leaves one more to visit in the fall which will be in Germany. Hence the quick weekend trips as I just don't have that amount of vacation time to spend as much time as I would like with them all. There is always GRANDMA CAMP too.
I marvelled at the "Wedding" today and it once again it reinforced in my mind that simple is best, family and being together and quiet, quality times away from all the hub bub is just what my doctor ordered. Some people thrive in a stress environment, I function and then crash and burn. There is not a one size fits all pattern. You need to find your comfort zone. Mine is family and watching a river flow by. Simple pleasures! I am in my element when I am with my kids(now adults) and sharing in my grandkids and their lives. My folks always would drop anything to help us out and now I am in that same position and willingly so. I know that some day the tables may turn and they will need to drop things in their lives to be with us. This may be the cycle of life and in that I find great comfort, knowing that I have raised wonderful, productive, loving adults that care about family and others. Isn't it what we all want? If you don't have that around you, then create the environment you want and need, there are others out there just waiting to hear from you and are sitting alone and not celebrating today or any day. We should be saying Wahoo everyday and making it the best day each day. Happiness looks good on anyone and it comes in all sizes and it fits and never needs taken back or exchanged.
