One More Thought…I somehow hit the publish button before I was finished…
With Santiago being just 5 days away I’ve been reflecting on why I’m doing this journey in the first place, now that I’m on the homestretch.
There is a saying: one travels the world in search of happiness, only to return home and find it waiting there all the time.
But I am not doing the Camino in search of happiness. I am doing it to fulfill a promise I made to God 21 years ago…and to rekindle my Spirit.
I hope that is worthy enough.
But I also know that step after step is causing me to realize what really matters in my life:
Home. Barbara. John. Stevie. Jack. Henry. Liza. Max. Matt. Alycia. Felix. Charlie.
And Oscar, too.
Okay, even Wrigley.
And my extended family, my Sister and her family and my friends.
It also makes me to realize how often I do not let my actions show that.
