Mother-Daughter Vacation

I am a SeasonedSistah with more “years of past memories” than “years of future living,” valuing and cherishing every moment I am with family and friends.

For the past four summers, my daughters have gifted ME with a one-week “Mother-Daughter Vacation ” in Martha’s Vineyard.  The grands will join us if they have no summer program scheduling conflicts.  Two of my grandsons, CJE (13 years) and GPK (17 years) tagged along.  During this vacation, I am comforted, spoiled, loved, and treated like a SeasonedSistah Queen.

This summer, I stepped out of my “comfort zone” and tried the camera functions on my IPAD and IPHONE.  The quality is not the best, but I really enjoyed taking the pictures.  So much so, I plan to purchase a camera and look into a photography class this fall.

I love spending  “quiet time” with my “visual memories”

They rent the same house every year.  It is spacious, comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped with cooking utensils and small kitchen appliances for both “simple” and “gourmet” meal preparations.

Other Daughter from Another Mother

The Other Daughter was  “on-the-go” for the entire week.    After biking or running every day, she willingly transported and chaperoned the grands along with her son for trips to the beach and other Island activities.  Daughters and I relaxed on the porch, read our IPADS and rocked in our chairs for most of the day.  Thank You Other Daughter.

I  really enjoyed my “Mother-Daughter” vacation; and, the “visual memories” will carry me through until the family comes together for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  

Retirement with Hubby in Florida these past three years opened up time for us to reflect  on our lives as well as pursue new adventures.  But, I do miss the regular face-to-face contact with my children and grands.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!
