Blog Your Blessings: Plenty

IMG 7036


This week I've had the opportunity to take a vacation with my daughter. We've spent most of the week on Topsail Island, North Carolina. Along the way we stopped at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to take in some US history, too. The variety of landscapes, the richness of color, the fulness of the beauty wherever we turn was clear to us every step of the way. I'm glad to have a job that, however challenging, rewards me with enough money to afford some time away with the kiddo. And I'm grateful to my generous parents, who let us use their beautiful house on the island as our home away from home. We had a great time. We saw plenty, relaxed plenty, laughed plenty, felt plenty, through and through. It's all good.
