I'm grateful to be able to have the option of posting from my phone when my laptop is without internet. I'm grateful for the modern technology we have, even when I don't understand it. I'm grateful to be packing up this morning to head home. I'm grateful for a wonderful trip and for how well my dogs rolled with everything. I'm grateful for hiking around and seeing gorgeous views. As I pack, I can't help but think of the metaphor of carrying life with us. Each experience gets packed in our mind and we haul it around with us every day. Some experiences are heavy, some light. When I pack for camping I have the choice of bringing the full camp gear with cast iron skillets or the backpackers' gear which is lighter and more space efficient. What if the same were true with memories? Which memories would you choose to pack and carry today? To an extent we do have this option by choosing what we focus on throughout the day. Are you creating happy, light memories? I'm grateful to pack memories of love. I'm grateful to know everything happens for a reason. I'm grateful to travel home in laughter and memories of a wonderful trip. May your day be blessed with joy and may you only carry happy memories today.
