...it's been a rough few weeks around here and while it is easy to dwell on all that is wrong and unjust, in my world and ours, I have been making a conscious effort to choose something different for myself. In doing so I hope that I am helping someone else to make a choice in their day to take a moment for joy. Embrace joy.
Last week my hubs, sensing my restlessness, pushed-pulled-dragged me out to the car. Which in my condition is no easy feat, get it? feet!! O.K., sorry...moving on...we loaded up the car and went for a little drive and ended up here:
Pt. Defiance ferry dock
after which we boarded and took a little ride to the other side, about ten minutes. Got off on Vashon Island and drove around the entire island, just looking around and checking out places to come back to when I am mobile. Had a little lunch and drove some more. Then:
we waited for another ferry, this time from Vashon to Seattle, about 30 minutes. After we crossed and disembarked...turned right, went up the hill, turned left...this is what was waiting for us!
we had to visit outside since Mimi (me) couldn't manage all the stairs to the house. It was getting late and the little punkin' was ready to sack out. So we loved on her for a few minutes and then headed home. Thanks to mama for bring her out to meet us. It was an excellent adventure indeed. Embrace joy this week, look for it, seek it out, count your blessings and choose joy.
