But, you want to know my favorite part of the trip?
At one point during our final day of canoeing, the sun had just started to lower and I had just started to relax enough to close my eyes and listen. I heard Dan paddle against the calm current. I heard Sherm snoring with his big head hanging out one side of the canoe. And I had a little moment. I can't really explain it because it was too quick and too private. But, in that moment I saw my life as it is right now. Right at that very moment. And I took it all in and I didn't let go.
And then I got sick and lost my voice.
Gosh I love the river.
And Sherm swimming. And husband paddling.
And me sitting in a lawn chair not burning a single calorie. Not a one.
And I love the fact that I am lucky enough to enjoy these little moments with husband and lab.
So very lucky.
