Vacation!While it is always exciting to think about a new adventure, it brings up those old anxieties again .. leaving the comfort zone called home. It is certainly something I wish I could get to the bottom of, and have tried to analyze it many times, but ... probably best not to go there.
DH and I have been to many different and exciting places ... traveled all over Europe, been to Israel a couple of times, Greece and Turkey, Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, cruises, and have tons of souvenirs, photos and memories to show for it. (I tell you this only so you know it's not like this is the first time we've ventured away from the home territory.)
The vacation itself will be a good one, but unfortunately it also involves figuring out a few little details
Yes, yes, I know, I know. I will get past this ... again. I really don't mean to be a scaredy cat.
Once we get out of the big city and on to the "real" vacation, I think we'll be just fine. Chicago is only the starting point for what should be a fun train trip to see a few of our beautiful national parks out west.
P.S. All things in perspective now, and I can truly tell you that laughter is the best medicine.Last night I asked my friend Alice about the airport in Chicago, since she has been there many times. Alice is one of the sweetest, dearest, kindest persons, so you have to know that she wasn't laughing at me, but when I expressed my concerns and anxieties
"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad."
