How many people get a chance to pause in their life?
To slow down, step off the train, and get to watch the world whirling by?
We stepped off the train only to return to a train blasting by when we returned home.
And yesterday we finally got to take a pause and slow down.
It reminded me of how I felt on our trip - so grateful to be alive. So happy to be a part of this year and with these people. So honored to have the love of my husband. So grateful for my parents. So alive.
It is a good life and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to pause to appreciate it. I think now the challenge of being home, and "real" life is carving out the times to pause and enjoy life.
