I am doing something I have never done before, I am going on vacation to Germany. Sure I have been there many times, for work, but never just for vacation. I leave in 2 days, and the days can not move fast enough for me!
This is a trip of a life time for me, I am going to fly into Koln, visit a few friends and than with a good friend of mine and his wife we will be driving to Berlin. So not only am I going to Germany for vacation, I am also meeting up with my good friends! Life is good!
But truth be told, the timing is, well lets just say it could be better. When I book my vacation I expected to be an “empty nester” so to speak, but as plans work out, this was not to be. The one who was to be off at collage ended-up staying home (and for that I am truly happy, but that’s another posting). Not only do I have my one, but I seemed to have gained another. And I am grateful for this, but the timing is less than perfect.
As many may know and some may not, I am currently in bankruptcy, so the planning of this trip was difficult under the best situation, but doable… My flight was free, all miles earned from work trips, the stay in Koln and Berlin is free and the expenses in Germany minable. So it was a perfect trip…
I should have known….
Child number one, who was to be off in Texas, well lets just say, the best laid plans don’t always work out. He was to go and live with his dad and attend school there. I was never for this move, his dad is well, not truly a father in any way shape or form. But he was dead set on this move, so moving was what was to happen. Thru Gods graces, his did showed his true colors and the move did not take place. That was ok, my plans were still doable. But than his did truly shined and refused to sign for his student grants…. BAM! Money spent I did not plan for…
But my trip was still on, the ticket was printed and waiting…
Hit number two came in the form of a 17 year old looking for stability, and choosing to find it in my home… Gaining guardianship was hit number two… BAM!
Both my boys are truly blessings to me, and I would not change a thing… But the timing was just off a bit… Such is life…
This trip will be what it will be, and the bills will get paid, maybe late a few days or so, but paid and the boys have a safe and happy home. Life is good!
I just wish their was a way I could have know all this before I booked my trip. But knowing me, I would not have booked it, so maybe in the long run it all worked out for the best. God knows me well and he knows what I need and when I need it.
So Koln and Berlin, here I come!
Until I return, September 20th, I wish you all the blessings of heaven and earth.
