Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
So I haven’t really figured out what the best way will be for me to post updates and thoughts about my trip. I know I don’t want it all to be on facebook but I’m sure we will be checking in whenever we can. I have two sites that I will be trying to update. This one my, blogger site and my Tumblr site. I am hoping one ends up being easier than the other and I’ll stick with that one.
Anyone who has ever traveled or camped with me knows I am over prepared. Its almost obsessive. I am going thru all my packing lists over in my head. Whats in my checked bag. What’s in my carry on bag. Whats in my purse. Did i get everything. And most important on this trip do i have too much. So far i think I’ve done great. The next 17 days will be the test .
My flight is at 11 tomorrow to Atlanta then to Rome. I’ll meet Elena and Alberto there. Then mom nonno and chris arrive and they will meet us in Naples.
I feel horrible that allie is so sick. Mom guilt of leaving her home is even stronger. I know dan will take great care of her while i am gone.
