I'm back from a trip out of my beautiful state of Virginia.
I had quite an adventure getting back and I cannot tell you how many times I thought of this quote that I have posted out there on the internet machine before:
"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are… Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect Tomorrow. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
- Mary Jean Iron
We leave home thinking that when away, things will somehow be better, make more sense, or the fabulous-ness of being away from the day to day will be refreshing. Oh this was so far from the truth. But I did walk away with a lesson learned--and sometimes you have to go away from home to finally see what you have.
*ps. I may never fly again. Driving is the way to go.
