Moving to Appomattox from Dallas has its advantages. As I got back to Dallas, I already want to get back to the traffic of central VA – I will roll slowly behind an Amish buggy as long as needed if I don’t have to pay toll and wait in a parked ‘expressway’.
I do miss the coffee spots that are 24 hours, the 100 year old El Fenix, and being close to my son. Oh, I guess being close to his soon to be bride as well.
￼This adventure to Dallas has a purpose. Our only son is getting married. And we need adventures in our lives. Walking along the shore at sunrise, hiking to the peak of a mountain you’ve never been on before, escaping into a great work of literature, discovering new (to me at least) truths from digging into the Bible.
But marriage – what a great adventure. As I ponder our son’s big day, I asked my wife if she would do it all again … with me. She said yes (good start) … then I asked with the same enthusiasm. She didn’t answer so quick. I’ll stick with the first question as the victory.
I love this adventure we are on – but all adventures take work. So I will continue to work on this great adventure with her.
For today – she wanted the coffee and oatmeal from BuzzBrews in Downtown Dallas – and I try to give my babe what she wants. Okay, I wanted it too.
Don’t stop taking on adventures. And if you’re married, enjoy that adventure too.
Calvin – you’re getting ready to take that great step into a lifetime of adventure – treasure it, treasure her.
To every reader – Have some coffee today and enjoy the adventure people.
