Another quick post today.
I am busy preparing for the longest trip I would have taken away from my two kids. I am excited, antsy, eager, worried and plenty confused with the tug of war of emotions in my heart. I convince myself on a daily basis that when I return, I will be an even better Mom, cook, friend, boss, sister and daughter. And no I'm not going to visit the Dalai Lama. It's a journey for seeing, learning and tasting more out of life, not that what I've seen, learned and tasted isn't good because truth be told--I'm good. I've said before that I am fortunate to have everything I need and desire within the distance of my arms opened wide-- that I only have to light my stove to eat something that can nourish our souls. That I can only reach out to have in my embrace the true loves of my life. That I only have to close my eyes and feel small against the will of God. All these remain to be true in my life and I am deeply and truly thankful for it. But I must have done something good to deserve a ticket to see even more. I promise to bring home more flavors, more textures, more color and depth to an already colorful and meaningful life.
Thank you God. Thank you Universe.
