Stalagmites, stalactites and Bears…oh my!

I’m…

Refreshed
Rejuvenated and
Revived

And what, you ask, did I do on this fabulous vacation?

Explored, examined and altogether enjoyed:

A visit to Cades Cove (more on that later)
Spotting a Mama Bear and cub (out in the wild!)
standing half a foot from sleeping bats (hanging out in an old church)
avoiding snakes (too close for comfort – ugh!)
spying Deer (everywhere!)
Touring Tuckaleechee Caverns and learning the difference between stalagmites, stalactites and chandeliers(more on that later, too)
Swimming in a cold, clear, mountain stream in Townsend
hiking up to a small, but beautiful, waterfall behind the Sugarland Welcome center
visiting the Cherokee Museum (broke my heart. seriously)

So….what didn’t I do on this fabulous vacation?

write
blog or
“do” email (okay, I did “do” email…my hubby took HIS computers. But I only read and/or responded to 10 of the 500 emails in my inbox. the rest I marked “as read”. I did NOT want to come home to that!)

We had a wonderful time. I had a chance to just “be”. (more on that later, too, I’m sure!)

Oh yeah — and we went to a place called WonderWorks. Wow. It wasn’t exactly “out in nature” like our other adventures…but it rocked, nonetheless. We need one here!!!

I’m ready to write — but my priorities are now in order (you guessed it, more on that later, too)

What did I bring back from this trip besides a deeper longing for cabin nestled in the woods?

A reminder that every good gift is a gift from the Lord.
And He has given us the gift of life.
Soooo…. I better Live life like I mean it!

Are you living life like YOU mean it?? If not – what are you waiting for?
