A year-and-a-half ago I requested time off from work to go visit my daughter, fast forward to now; “Do you still want to take off even though you’re sequestered to your home?” Instant reply; “Yes, thank you!”
Stayed home two weeks; no cough no signs of illness and it was time to “come home“. These three had just about enough of my absence and Gary couldn’t reiterate again; “Ok now the bird is throwing seeds on the floor and you know I don’t change litter boxes” Absolutely missed that man and my fuzzy feathery children! Living certainly has a way of stretching you to new depths of understanding!
Wow teary reunions all right, times like this solidify, no, magnifies the reason for our being! Gary looked at me with that wry grin of his and twinkle in his eye stating; “Sweets, it’s time for that road trip.” The CDC finally lifted the band for travel between states and it had been several years since seeing my daughter and grandchildren. Road-trip ON!
We had the best time, cherished even more the friendship with Gary, love deepened with every mile. Understand the love between my parents and his. Get what family is all about and it had nothing to do with any political agendas, it was all about discovery.
As we spent precious time with family and exchanged thoughts, ideas even with the Amish, again illustrated the preciousness of a statement; labor of love. Truly believe we attract what we need for growth; spiritual and beyond.
Sitting here smiling in a spirit of thanksgiving! Reflecting on the scriptures from my youth; do not be afraid….all things work out for good for those who love the Lord and the words of my earthly father; LOVE WINS EVERY TIME how I miss him. As long as I have breath will walk through to the standard of living kindly, knowing nature is a gift and all her teachings are in the wind itself. We are here just a short while, may we never give up on starting each day with the hope of love and paying forward to the best of our being while traveling on our path.
