Is a vacation trip for a mother and grandmother with four children a vacation? Hardly! But it’s a change from the routine, and I guess that is what counts.
I am taking advantage of a few moments before the entire “tribe” is awake to make sure my cyber friends know that I’m alive. I have not vanished from the face of the earth. We went on this “vacation” for a purpose, that purpose is complete. My beautiful niece is now married to her charming prince.
It was a HOT afternoon, in a botanical garden, with everybody sweating, that these young people said their vows. It could have been raining!
We now have a few days left of “vacation”. When I get another chance to devote a few moments to the computer, I might write a story about this vacation experience. As for now, mother and daughter are doing their best to stay “sane” and keep the four kids safe.
Considering the circumstances, they are doing great. By the way, I promised David I would go with him to watch a Transformers movie that is now in theaters . “I know you would just do it to make me happy,” said David yesterday, because he figures, what fun can Transformers be for a grandmother?!
The true meaning of happiness is to make others happy. That is also the true meaning of this vacation!
