Europe, Here I Come!
I had a conversation with my best friend just after Christmas about our bucket lists. Places we’d like to go, things we’d like to do- and hers was a trip to Europe with me. AND she is paying for a trip for us to go. At first I was hesitant because that is a HUGE gift. It seems too much. Then she explained that she’s not going to tour Europe by herself and she wants to take me with her so we can experience it together. How can I say no?
So sometime this summer, we’ll be on a European tour! I am excited and scared all at the same time… I’ve never been out of the country in my life. Not Mexico, not Canada- nowhere. Nor have I ever been that far away from my kids. I realize they are older and I really need to cut the apron strings- but what if something happens? What if one of them breaks a leg? What will they do without me? They will survive, I’m sure. But what if? What if? What if? These are the things that I have been thinking about….. I’m letting my fears take over the idea of this amazing opportunity to see another part of the world.
We have plans to see a little bit of Scotland, a little bit of England, a little bit of France and an even smaller bit of Italy. I’m getting into it now. Listening to French recordings so I can at least understand a little, picturing the castles and the Scottish countryside…..so excited!!
