As a means of resolving this problem I am taking Fridays off during the Summer. I WILL create, crochet, make unhealthy sweet treats, let them stay up late, go to the movies, go on dates with the hubster, explore my world, read and for once in my life be unscheduled (atleast I am scheduling this for Fridays). Yes, I plan to make memories!
I will also dream of visiting my parents this September. Because my family deserves a little vacation and because I miss my mom and dad terribly, this visit is a must. Ok... Ok… its a secret mission to convince my parents to move back to the lovely midwest. I will do my best to convince them that moving back to live in the midwest is the best thing that they can do. Afterall, why would they want to live near a beach in a tropical paradise, eating organic homegrown, surrounded by a garden that blooms year round and speaking their primary language, when they can be here with me breathing toxic air and worrying about utility rates during the gray and cold winter months?!
I do miss my parents though….. and I wish , oh how I wish, I had spent more time with them before they retired to the island. Because nothing reminds me more of God's love than family. Nothing rejuvenates me more than hearing the roaring laughter of family around one of mom's awesome dinners. Nothing makes me question God more too than my parents (LOL) and this in itself has caused me to continuously be in conversation with God.
