I tend to be the kind of person that sticks to the plan.
Recently, I found myself just a couple hours away from my aunt and uncle that I haven’t seen in 17 years. There was a cost in deviating from the plan and taking this detour. But I am SO glad I did. They were like kids having someone come visit. My Aunt Peg is 87 and still cares for her great big yard by herself because “gardeners don’t know what they’re doing.”
My Uncle Norman is 103…yup 103!!!
He shared the most incredible letters he wrote home from the Philippines during the war. He even shared pictures of when Bob Hope’s USO came to visit them. Such a priceless, precious time. If you get the chance, take the detour. No matter the cost.
