Vacay Time!by Glenda K. Harrison on 07/08/18
I can always tell when vacay time
draws near. For one, my 'full steam ahead' mentality seems to come to
an abrupt halt. Second, I can't think of anything other than closing
shop. That's exactly where my mind and soul currently rest. If you

then you know my husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary
at Disney's California Adventure...minus our sons. I must admit, at
first it felt strange going to an amusement park without them, but once
we arrived, we felt like our 20-something year old selves (the age we
first met). The day was the perfect reminder of the importance of
maintaining our spirit of fun and childlike wonder. In other words, life
isn't always about the hustle. We have to include time of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
While some may consider time at a busy amusement park a far cry from resting, relaxing or rejuvenating, it was indeed what the doctor ordered. You see, my husband and I typically have our sons with us (with the exception of a view small trips). It was he who reminded me of the importance of the two of us spending quality time as a couple. "After all, the boys are becoming men," he said.
We both came back refreshed. You should have heard us tell our sons about our day. We were like teenagers again!
So, my Friends, this is my final Fragrant Pages and So What to Twenty blog posts until September 4th. I'm off to enjoy the rest of my summer, and I hope you do as well - you crazy kids.
