The Simple Things Are The Most Memorable Memories On Vacation
For some reason the other day a memory came to mind of a vacation I had taken with my daughter Kristina and her friend Holly. The memory is nothing big, but a funny moment that we remember and laugh about.
So here it is….We were driving to Florida and I had been driving all night while she and her friend slept. They had insisted that we drive straight through. It was about 6:00 am and I decided to pull over and just take a quick nap. They would never know I stopped… they were sleeping. I pulled over at a rest stop and I had just fallen asleep. So who decides to wake up? Her friend Holly who had the funniest look as if saying ‘What the hell are you doing?’ I know that this memory isn’t funny perhaps to you…but every time we talk about a trip we remember that for some odd reason. (It’s one of those …you had to be there moments)
Kristina and Holly have been best friends since grade school. We have gone on many trips, and have spent the night at each others house many many times. I have been very fortunate to have spent many great times and created many great and funny memories. Many years have past and they are grown women now….It all went so fast and will cherish the time when they were young.
My point to this is that we need to enjoy every moment and appreciate them. It seems to me that whenever I reminisce about something…..it is always about the journey in getting there and not the destination as much. It’s the Simple Things!
Don’t be in such a rush….. as they say take time and smell the roses.
If you have a memory to share I would love to hear it…..so would others….
