I am not afraid of tomorrow

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today. – William Allen White

English Bay, Vancouver

Being a parent is an amazing journey which moves you through the days and years at a speed that is astounding. Where you are headed can sometimes be unknown, but I have come to discover that the purpose of the journey is truly about helping and guiding your children to find their place in the world, wherever it may be.

 

You lose sight of things…

You lose sight of things… and when you travel, everything balances out. – D. Gidel

It’s true that when you are busy living life, you need time away to regain your balance. This much I know – when I travel, it slows me down and gives me time to think. And that creates balance.

Having time to read (6 books!) doesn’t hurt either.

 

See what you see

The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see – G.K. Chesterton

As March break begins, I am reminded of our trip last year to Bermuda, where I learned how not to be just a tourist.

We did many tourist type activities – a crazy few days driving a scooter, hitting the beach – but the camera helped me to “see what I saw”.
