I must say that I love to take journeys and when I say journeys I mean the longer the timespan the more memories that are made, the more enjoyable the trip is. My family makes it a point to go on a journey at least once per year. Whether it be a flight to a resort, a Airbnb stay, a cruise, or a road trip we make time and we make a way as long as God sees fit.
I call myself an explorer. I love to see outside of where I am, to capture the beauty of other places, and to eat all different types of foods. But I ask myself what is a journey really about?
Dictionary.com explains the word to mean:
1. a traveling from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time; trip:
2. a distance, course, or area traveled or suitable for traveling:
The Thesaurus describes this word as adventure, exploration, expedition, travel, or progress.
See my family when we travel there is so many of us at any given time it can be between 4 – 16 with the children lol and there are laughs, tear good and bad, jokes, stories of different kinds, and just pure fun. Once a year we make it a point to go out of the country together on an adventure to makes memories that’ll last a lifetime. We’ve been to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Grand Cayam Islands, Jamaica, Cuba, and Key West just to name a few. It is our way of bonding.
God has called us not just to work but to enjoy the fruits of our labor with those closest to us.
And trust me the journey is well worth it!
How do you bond with those you love?
