I can't sleep so I might as well write. We have 10 days until we are on our way down to Walt Disney World in Florida. I cannot wait. I might actually be more excited than the 7 year old. We took her down there 4 years ago with her Nene and that was amazingly fun...even though Hal literally lost his job the day we got back. Thankfully we recovered from that, although it was a crazy ride to do so. You never know what fate has in store for you just around the corner. What seems so comfortable and smooth today could blow up tomorrow. Count your blessings I guess.
Because I have had so many unhappy surprises in my life this go around, as most of us have I'm sure, I tend to like to know what's coming. This is why I trust a psychic as one of my go-to girls in this lifetime, even though I didn't find her until 3 years ago. And it's also why I'm spending a lot of time learning the Tarot. Most call it a tool for divination. I call it a spiritual quest. I'm searching for the meaning of life...especially my own. Whether or not the Tarot can accurately predict my future or not, it gives me plenty to think about. These cards contain just about every human emotion, experience, predicament, and life situation you can think of. If you haven't considered all of the elements of the human existence yet, pick up a Tarot deck and book and go to it. I even joined a class called the Summer Tarot Immersion taught right here in Athens. It's my way of saying to the Universe, I'm going to figure out my life dang it. I'm going to "make something out of myself." I might not be rich, or 100% happy, or have 2.5 children and a fenced in backyard suitable for a $500 dog...but I will find out what makes me tick and I will find out what my purpose is and how it's evolving. I will discover where to put my talents to good use and I'll find my holes and plug them. Intention is half the battle and I intend to make the most of this life.
Disney is a good start! :)
Sarah now has one play under her belt, so to speak, but nonetheless I made a dining reservation with the Princesses at Epcot for a breakfast. When I told her about it and asked her if she was excited to be eating with the Princesses she calmly smirked, "mommy they are just tall girls in a costume!" My baby is growing up way too fast. Glad we went 4 years ago when everything was overwhelming yet believable. I still remember her shrieking when Tinker Bell "flew" out of the castle on a zip line. So sweet, but there will be more sweet memories made this time around too. I love that child, and I love that God has blessed us with jobs so we can take her places once in a while and make some of her dreams comes true.
