Everyone deserves a break, every now and again. The subject matter from which we all need a break can vary. Some need a break from work; some from family; kids from school and still others from things like oh, say, holiday treats. I wouldn’t know anything about needing a break from holiday treats, just so ya know.
More than almost anyone I know, there are two folks that deserved the much-needed break they enjoyed last week. The ‘rents left the day after Thanksgiving for a trip to Mexico; their first time. Despite the fact that they slept in separate beds the entire trip (due to a booking snafu), I got the sense that they really, really enjoyed their time away. See exhibit A.
Connor and I were looking at the photo last week and he saw me smiling. He asked why the picture made me so happy. I told him that 1.) Grandpa and Grandma are a couple of sixty-year-olds on a zip line (I’m not judging!), 2.) Grandpa and Grandma are literally wrapped up into each other (not a huge surprise) and that 3.) Grandpa and Grandma look absolutely, truly happy.
Sometimes, breaks are necessary.
Now, get back to work you two!
Just so you know….sixty something is the new thirty something and we have the time to enjoy it!:) Love reading your posts Staci and I love that little boy of yours too!
