Cabin Fever

So the whole week has been a snuggy one staying inside and being warm in the face of winter and by this morning I awoke and thought, Oh no, its Cabin Fever~

Time to get out..head out on the highway…looking for adventure…OK back to the reality of it all…it meant a trip to Kitchener.  My SIL who is one of my besties has spent the last three weeks in Rome, Nairobi and Amsterdam and finally, finally after 3 weeks came home.  I like travel, but I have to say three weeks is way toooo long.

Anyway she got home yesterday so off I go this morning.  Cold..minus something..but the roads were clear..which is a biggie…had lunch and met her this afternoon.  Quite disgusting really as she looked younger and more vital than pretrip although she insisted being on the verge of exhaustion.  I should look so good when exhausted!

It dawned on me while driving home later in the day how wonderful my  life is.  I have the extreme pleasure of loving and being loved by wonderful people mostly because if love had to do with deserving it I would have none.  There is so much I would change if I had it to do over again..but since it seems there are no do overs…then I am doubly blessed.

Somehow there is a worth that we may believe is not deserved but somehow it is deserved.  And that my friends who doubt miracles, is the miracle.

    It is good to get out and spend time with those we love, no matter what the weather. Keep warm and remember we are all worthy of love!

    Ah, Chris, you are so right! We don’t always deserve it, but we are certainly blessed to receive love. Sorry to hear you, too, had a case of cabin fever. Glad you managed to get out. Stay warm, my friend.

    I asked Georgette as Caleb is eight and hesitant to just go..he had a couple of bad falls with big scrapes so I hope in the spring he will be ready!

    We are blessed, aren’t we? Daughter called this morning just to say “hi” on her way to work. Grandson finally mastered the bicycle yesterday! Such a milestone. The facebook pictures bear his accomplishment out. :)

      We truly are blessed Georgette! How old is your grandson who mastered the bike?

        8…His mom took the bull by the horns, loaded the bike in the back of the car, unloaded it at a park with a circular pad and told him “Go!” Finally, he has learned. I tried as early as 4 & 5 & 6 with him…sigh! What kid wouldn’t want to feel the freedom of wheels? I’m so relieved he has achieved this. Silly stress. :)

    Just had a call from my neighbours who are visiting near you. Wind chill factor of minus 30? Yike, no wonder you needed to get out.

    Yah, Chris, it’s amazing how we’re loved in spite of ourselves. I feel the same!
