"Distance is a bad excuse for not having a good relationship with somebody. It's the determination to keep it going or let it fall by the wayside that's the real reason that the relationships continue."
Oscar Wilde wrote “I adore simple pleasures. As human beings we seek to be happy. We look to meet others who will “make” us happy and we work very hard to achieve what we think will bring us happiness. But we seem to be on a lifelong quest to find something that is elusive. We say, I would be happy if…”In the meantime, we overlook all the little opportunities for happiness that come to us each day.
Among my Simplest and Greatest Pleasures are my 4 Grandchildren in Maryland and Michigan
Exactly 2 years ago in August of 2013, my Family of 9: my daughter and son’s families and my Boston family of 8 were together for a week in Sea Pines, SC. It reaffirms once again what "Simple Pleasures" families are and will continue to be!
With that said, in a mere 2 weeks on Aug. 16, there is another Family Reunion already "Signed, and Sealed," only this time the 18 of us will be "Delivered" to the Outer Banks with or without sharks, but with plenty of love.
"Life is like a carnival ride. You can play it safe and ride the merry-go-round, it's predictable. But, myself personally, I will ride the rollercoaster, for all it's glory and thrills, It's ups and downs, twists and turns, and rushes." ("Unknown"-Not me)
So, "Life is all about choices. Play it safe and be good or take chances and be great." (Ore Abayomi)
If you have a Sense of Adventure can stand on a ladder to reach NEW Heights, if your Baggage doesn't go over the limit if you have the gift of gab if you love romance and reaching beyond the Mundane and relish delving into new EXPERIENCES with the excitement and feeling that a Loving New Relationship brings, What are We Waiting for. Let's go on an Exciting New Journey. It's never too late, and It will never be dull. Hop on! I'll drive, or you can, but better yet, we will drive together. No Triple A Maps or a Trip-tix is needed.
No Pollyanna am I, as my family and I have had our share of adversity. THIS IS THE REASON THAT I TOOK THE ROAD NOT TAKEN. I am checking shoe sizes, and in so doing, I am also reflecting on the many facets “that a special New Relationship brings.
To My Family, my life will continue to be SHARING with xoxoxo! "To Them and ALL the People in my Life a "DoubleChai,” I will expand my possibilities.
With all of this said, is there someone who believes as I do in connecting 2 Souls for the Next Journey, hand in hand, as the threads of both of our lives weave together creating OUR VERY OWN TAPESTRY?
And with literary license, one more quote for the road if you have gotten this far (Yes, you! I'm referring to you.) "Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the THINKS (we) can think up if only (we) try!... Credit- Dr. Seuss.
