and so it is...that we sail ahead in the seas, sometimes not really knowing where we are going or how long it will take to get there, but we follow through with the same routine that we know will keep us sane and safe and sound. The simplicity of waking in the morning and having coffee, the reliance on certain sounds and sights of the day, the simple touch of someone we love or hearing their voice. We sail on. And then when we finally get a chance to dock and set our feet on the solid land and take a moment to reflect on the dangers of our journey, we realize how many perils we have been surrounded by and how our angels have truly taken care of us, how brave we have been in the face of things that sometimes seem impossible...our time spent caring for our boat and our supplies, replenishing, cleaning, mending, remembering. All of this is our journey on the wide wide sea, we need to remember that we have safe harbors and give in to the simple act of rest.
