Meet the Empress of the Seas. She will be Charlie's (husband) and I companion for the next week! We set sail on Saturday and are heading to the lovely Island of Bermuda! My first cruise, and I am so excited!
Isn't it funny how we as humans get so excited over experiencing something for the first time! The goosebumps of anticipation on your first day of school.
Soon enough you made a whole new class room of friends and adventures of a lifetime begin to unfold as you live your childhood through the eyes of many first times.
My cheer-leading try outs, the ecstatic joy that I felt when I was picked. Teenage years come and go, and before you know it......
The look of wonder as you stare down at your first child. Now a life of many of their first times begin to make huge impressions on you! Oh look they smiled! Here comes their first tooth! Their first word, Their first step...
I still feel like a child when I experience some of my adventures throughout life. I read somewhere that happiness is not pleasure-----it is victory. Unlike my cruise life sure is a never ending journey, only with some days having a little more of a surprise than others.
I will be out of the Rain for a week, and miss you all very much. Your task is to be happy!
