Hi there. I’m just returning from a two week trip that I dreamed about for months. Only the actual vacation ended up being a total nightmare.
Traveling with two little kids is not easy. Traveling with two little kids and being sick is the pits. Just when my eldest was starting to recover, my little one and I both got slammed with it as well.
My husband and I were pretty upset, but I realized that I could use this challenging time as an opportunity. Was this not just like all the difficult things in life? Yes it meant we couldn’t do all the fun things we planned. But we were here as a family, we were going to pull through and teach our kids that good things come even when things don’t go as planned.
I know this is only a trip. You may be grappling with bigger fish. Maybe you’re waiting for a diagnosis, your relationship is on the rocks or your working on yourself. Reading our posts this week helped me. I know it’ll help you too.
