Carolina Beach Time
I had a great time with family with lots of service projects. I always enjoy helping my mother with various projects around the house and yard. Her mobility has diminished along with her health and I’m concerned for her health and ability to take care of everything. I even considered moving back to the Washington DC area to be closer, but ultimately I’m not ready to take on the pace, expense and traffic of the area. So for now, I plan to go back more often to help mom and be with my brother’s family.
And now I’m happy to be at the beach for a few days of rest and relaxation. I arrived at Carolina Beach NC in time for my birthday! It was such a treat to have dinner looking out at the ocean for my birthday. There is much to process and decide about my life and family. For now, I simply want to say thanks to the many people who have reached out to me during my travel.
I didn’t spend much time online while I was visiting family and I really enjoyed keeping my online time limited. It helps me realize that I prefer more physical, in person activity and less digital time. I don’t know what this will mean for my blog, but it’s clear that I plan to spend more time being physically active and interactive with people. I can see how my digital life has been a time filler and replacement for reaching out to people and creating personal connections.
Until next time or my return to Fayetteville, Hasta La Vista baby!
