And this is it. Last days of 6 months.

November 29, Thursday: Travelled all day to Arkansas with a long 3 hour layover in Detroit in the middle which I took advantage of and had a plate of sushi and miso soup. The family picked me up at the airport at 10PM in the 15 passenger van. It’s so good to see my dad too! He is very much confined to bed and not all that communicative but he’s a still alive and kicking.

December 1, 2017: Friday. Went with A to get our nails done after breakfast at Chick-fil-a πŸ™‚ She generously treated me to a wonderfully red pedicure at the Le Nails and Spa salon. She’s a sweet kid and a better driver than the last time I was in Arkansas. We came back and joined the fam to make gingerbread houses, jump on the trampoline, take a nap, eat peanut butter sandwiches, shop at Walmart, get frozen yogurt with the 4 youngest kids, walk home from The Dreamy Spoon, play Wii bowling, watch Monsters Inc, peel potatoes for mashed potatoes/roasted chicken dinner. It’s been a great last day.

And that’s it. Then end of the 6 month journey. And I don’t know if I ever want to write another blog post again πŸ™‚ A lot has happened in the last 6 months and although I do have a few regrets and not all of it has gone according to plan, it’s been good. I am excited for the next 6 months! Life is too short to be vacant from it. Don’t vacate your life. Live it fully and with intention. I am thankful for the grace to continue to learn how to do this. To live with fully lit eyes, not vacant eyes. To live it surrounded by people you care about. To live, thankful and on purpose.
