Well, here we are right in the middle of summer. Most likely a few of you have already gone on a vacation or are planning one. Vacations are good for the soul. Not only do they give you quality fun time with loved ones, they also rejuvenate. Who couldn’t use some rejuvenation!
Recently, my husband and I went on a three-day excursion. Granted, it wasn’t a week vacation, but it was fun. We went zip lining and horseback riding. My husband, at 72 years old, rolled down a hill for the first time in his life! He didn’t even have that on his bucket list. We were sitting with a few other vacationers and commented on the little children rolling down the hill and how much fun that used to be. My husband said he had never done that. Well, the rest was history. The guests all stood up and clapped when he reached the bottom. Not sure if it was because he had made it or had not seriously injured himself!
We met some special people while we were there. We spoke with a grandfather who was there with his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. He told us that his grandson at the age of 5 years old, had already had 6 brain surgeries and although his prognosis was favorable, they were going to do as much with him and have him experience as much of life as possible.
My point is, take some time off for yourself. Life can fly by in an instant and it doesn’t matter if you are 5 or 72 years old. Enjoy all moments and take that vacation whether it be a long weekend or a month. Vacations are good for the soul!
