A Happy and Thankful Life

End of vacation

I’ve been on vacation for the last week and a half. I return tomorrow. Yes, July 4th. But, I have a few things to work on and a quiet office will allow me to work on the reports and clear my email.

This vacation has been interesting as I wasn’t sure how I would be during the anniversary of the days that were some of the hardest last year. I’m still not ready to talk about last year or this year’s emotions too much right now. I’ll get to that at some point. Just not tonight.

Tomorrow I’m returning to work sunburned, covered in mosquitoes bites, and with a broken windshield and dents all over my car. But I’m also blessed to have a peaceful week and a half to remember, and spend quality time with one of best friends, my MIL and my family. There were 2 trips to amusement parks, 1 niece’s birthday, 2 cakes made, 1 tearful visit to Kobacker House, 1 statehouse tour, 4 nights camping, 1st trip to Put-in-Bay, 1 near encounter with a tornado, 1 cat happy to see me, and lots of laughter and a side of tears.

Didn’t realize at the time but it was exactly what I needed. I’m thankful for that. And I’m thankful for realizing that.
