So, last week, Jeff & I headed out on a cruise to the Caribbean with my family. It was a great time, but I’m so glad to be home. I missed my son and my home and everything surrounding that. I knew I was feeling like a “mom without a child” when I was tempted to pick up and comfort a little African American girl who was crying. She’s about as far away as you can get from physically looking like my son and I still had to fight the urge to mother her!
I have many thoughts about vacationing. And vacationing without children. Good things. Bad things. Positives. Negatives.
And while I have many thoughts about this, I have little desire to blog about them. Maybe I’m just in a blogging slump? Maybe later. So, I’ll summarize my thoughts by saying:
- I had an absolutely wonderful time. This world truly has some beautiful places.
- I loved spending time with my family.
- I adored spending time with just my husband.
- I missed my little one immensely and can’t imagine being away from him for that long. At least not in the next 20 years!
