Diving Heart-first into the Adventure from “I” to “we,” I had to stop reading about everybody else’s Adventure and remember that we’re on an Adventure ourselves. (It’s not too late).
Before we go on, I have a confession to make:
I never really wanted kids in the first place.
I figured they’d just get in the way of everything that matters most to me.
But somewhere along the way, this ‘loner’ changed her mind.
Which led to Ron and I talking about family, children, and our future and found that we were on the very same page.
The birth of our first son, Ryan, was the most life-changing event of my life.
I learned that family relationships were paramount. But you probably already know that.
So, three children later, we packed up the boys and went on a 6-month around-the-world Adventure. And I saw immediately that they weren’t ‘in the way’ like I thought.
I was wrong.
They were the way.
A blind man could see that the value of our time with our children took us down a whole new, and necessary, path of Adventure.
On top of that, we found brothers and sisters we’d never met before, and it was our children who introduced them to us.
We were so much larger than just 1 family.
We are worldwide.
We are the universal family of God.
(We’ve started on our new Adventure together like we talked about last week, and I swear to you that it won’t be the same, for me, if you don’t come along.)
These are my thoughts today. Is there anything–dreams, thoughts or adventures–that I’ve missed?
