Unexpectedly at Home


According to my original plans, I was supposed to be leaving today for Valencia. However, with my visa still pending, I am still gladly at home. Instead of being a bit angry or bitter, I have decided to take advantage of the extra six weeks with a sense of excitement.

By not going, I am able to spend more time with close friends, help usher a dear pet out of this life, get a chance to spend time with family, celebrate a few extra birthdays, cook a few new recipes, and learn a little more Spanish. Timing is said to be everything, but I know a secret: accepting the timing that I cannot control is a key to appreciating the time we have.

Above all, this is really making me excited for what comes next. I recognize that this is simply a holding pattern, and at least I’m allowed to use the bathroom and keep my tray table down and seat as reclined as possible.

Who can complain about that?

  1. Remember the old country song: “I Thank God for Unanswered Dreams”…as a believer in “signs”, it’s all meant to be. Hang in there!
