This was a week for musing.
A week to think about life.
A week to think about the past and look forward to the future.
As Chris and I had breakfast on the balcony of our VRBO beach rental I found myself feeling a little bit chilly so I donned a sweatshirt to ward off the one day ( hopefully) of mist and chill. He glanced over at my shirt and commented on it.
It was a shirt I got during one of his business trips several years ago when he worked his last job before he started his own consulting company. It quickly became one of my favorites because it is oversized, comfortable and has a nautical theme. And to be honest – it brings back some really nice memories of a fun weekend with the wives of some of the staff.
It got me to thinking about how our life is a book filled with chapters.
One after another we turn the pages and discover new adventures, new friends, new experiences. That sweatshirt was from an old chapter in my life but it still has meaning to me. Those people still have meaning to me. It is all part of my story.
I mused to Chris that this sweatshirt was from a another chapter in our lives and that it was nice to think about my life being a book. I told him I was glad. he was part of my book and that I really love this chapter that I am in right now. It is a comfortable chapter that I find myself currently in.
As the sun shines down today on the sand and sea, as I reach for yet another book to read, I sigh a little bit and anxiously turn the next page of life.
What lies ahead?
Some pages may be a little dog eared, have a few things highlighted or underlined, may need to be reread a couple of times but I am so thankful that my book continues to grow in length. How blessed am I to be in this chapter at this time?
I hope your book is filled with many chapters today – and I am very glad that you are a part of my personal book. Thanks for stopping by.
