I can't tell you how blessed I am from your comments on my last post. What an encouraging group of blogger friends I have here! Anyways, one of you said that you should "Do it afraid," if you can't do it anyothe way.
I took her advice. I never do anything on the spur of the moment. I've told you I'm a die-hard planner.
But I am changing. On Sunday, my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday after church. What I really wanted to do was run away. So that's what we did. We threw some clothes in our car, grabbed my birthday gift money and gift cards and headed south. Part of me wanted to turn around and be practical like we did on our first anniversary. We'd thrown our suitcases in the car then when we lived in VA but then turned around an hour later and bought a stereo for our car. Curt spent the day installing it while I watched.
Sometimes old habits are hard to break. But I did this past Sunday.
It was a great way to start my new year. We explored Sanibel Island together and strolled the shell-filled beach. I wish I could have spent more than hours there but it was enough to renew my spirit. When we came home last night, our power was out for a few hours so my hiatus away from phone messages and the computer continued.
But I have a ton to catch up on starting with looking again at your sweet messages and reading your blog posts--my favorite part of the day. Look for me--I'll be around!
But let me ask you this--do you live in the moment?
