John and I have developed our own little serenity plan. Our trip to North Carolina and into the mountains supplies us with an outing that takes only a few hours. It also gives Austin time to hang his head out the window and learn the skills of staying on his paws securely planted on his platform while taking all the curves. This last trip to the mountains was to Sky Top Orchards, where even into November a wide variety of apples were there for our tasting and selecting.
As the sun shines through the windows of the car and we travel down the mountain with two big bags of apples, I realize how such a little trip can cure so many sad moments. I am blessed to have a husband that listens when I say I am sad, and comes up with something so relaxing.
God is good, and little things are given without fan fair. This is what I am thankful coming into the beautiful holiday of Thanksgiving.
