Thai nights under palm trees, sipping cocktails and pondering life. 🤣😂🤣 Ha! That's the funniest thing I have ever said!! Parents don't sip we gulp, and we have no opportunity to ponder because how do you ponder life when life is happening so quickly right in front of your eyes. But we did sit under palm trees and watch our children catch geckos and that was lovely 😍
I'm totally kicking ass at this "worlds best uncle" thing! Atti had never had a treasure hunt before so I put one together for him. Made a tea soaked map that had been burnt/crumpled so it looked really old and it had a little drawing of him as a pirate searching for the "gold" that was being guarded by the monster (a minion) of the island! He sat on my lap and directed me in and around the house as we finally found the "X"... We ran into a problem because I told him we had to dig for treasure and he said "but I didn't bring a shovel" haha to smart for his own good! I told him it was ok to use his hands! Bada Bing Bada Boom, the rest is history! Enjoy the photos as he realises what a hunt is and then completes it! Score for Uncle Truck!
If you're unclear of your career path, this one's for you .... Dear God, Dear Angels, Dear Universe,
As I sit here right now, I feel afraid. I do not know my path. I do not know my heart. I do not know myself. I desire to do good in the world, to be of service, to help others. I desire to contribute, to cultivate my talents and use them to bring joy, peace, harmony, and prosperity to myself, to my loved ones, and to others. As I sit here right now, with pain and confusion, I do not know even the next step. I feel so lost. I feel so afraid. I wonder if I can ever come out of this darkness.
So I come to you with hope, with desire to be freed, to be guided, to become acquainted with myself. I know there is greatness in me, but I don’t know how to find it.
I know there is a function that I serve, a reason I was born; please help me align with what that is. I do not know how this will happen and sometimes that causes me anxiety, but in faith, I release and let go.
I open my heart to new possibility. I open my mind to miracles, to new beliefs, to new information, to new ways of being that can absolutely transform what now looks hopeless into joy and fulfillment beyond what I could ever even dream up for myself. Please work through me. Please guide me. Please hold me. Please let me feel your love. I surrender. I say yes. I am ready. Blessed be. Amen.
After ten miles of hiking with a heavy pack through hordes of mosquitos, this beach was a welcomed sight. A place to play in the water and refuel. We were going to need it for the next twelve miles.
This 22 mile, one day hike was a real challenge... But it was worth it.
