Enjoy the Journey!

We just returned from a week in Virginia with my husband’s family.  We had a great time.  Of course the flight from the West coast to the East Coast is brutal with a baby, 3 year old and 5 year old.  But my kids, amazingly enough, travel so well.  It’s my hubby and I that get exhausted – ha!

Here’s a picture of Lucy, happy as can be on that airplane.  She sat on my lap for about 8 hours.  There were times when she would stare and smile at other passengers, and I just had to laugh because they would be working on the computer, entirely missing her four-tooth grin.

What I learned from Lucy was to enjoy the ride.  No matter where life takes you (maybe you feel stuck in an airplane just waiting to go someplace), make the most of the journey.  Life is an adventure and if you can learn how to smile even through the tedious parts, you will feel younger.  And look it too!  Just look at Lucy!
