For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin--real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.~Alfred D. Souza
I have ached to be on the open road since my first taste of freedom. For a long time I have merely thought about the places I've wanted to go instead of just facing my fears and getting on with it. It kills me to think of the time I've lost in between realizations although not being the same person then that I am now by the laws of the universe wouldn't have allowed that to happen any sooner than it did. Life is full of so many ups and downs and I can't keep up with whether I'm coming or going sometimes. Last week wasn't what I could classify as anything I care to relive. I'm happy that it's now behind me and I can move on. I've got some plans to make and some things to look forward to and by Friday everything will be back to normal. Thursday is when Cody will be back from his beach vacation with his co-workers. I miss him A LOT! The entire time that we've been together you have rarely found us apart, it's good for us. Makes me appreciate him that much more................I am thankful, indeed.
