“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
It is our “Birthday Weekend!” Our birthdays are one year and one day apart! I guess we can never forget each other’s birthday this way! We miss that Biscuit is not here to celebrate with us as we made Biscuit’s Birthday August 8, as that was the day he was rescued off the street in North Carolina. (I am giving Doug a special birthday present, which I will share more about in a future blog post!)
Doug planned a nice weekend for us! Doug and I are leaving for Delaware today to stay at one of our favorite places, the Montchanin Inn — a very quaint, peaceful, and serene place located in the Brandywine Valley. (We have not been there since we rescued and adopted Biscuit as furry family members are not permitted). We are looking forward to getting away for a few days before our move to the new house, which is rapidly approaching! I hope that you have something fun planned this weekend, where you take some time for what matters most, to turn you brains off, let go of the pressures you put on yourself, and just spend some time soaking in where you are at this exact moment. This life is made up of a series of right nows — Biscuit taught me this.
Until then, thank you for sharing in our journey. It means more than you know.
