A Vacation To Last A Lifetime

Today I am DRAGGING! I have been sick for a little over a week now with a cough that has kept me up for the past four nights. I am tired, bodily fatigued and full of whiny complaints. But sometimes magic occurs just when you need it most...

So I'm in a discussion when it veered suddenly with a question about the tee shirt I was wearing. It happened to say "I've been to Hell and back." While I'm not in the habit of wearing profanity on my body, the shirt was a memento from a trip taken some years back to Hell, Grand Cayman and I had the AWESOME pleasure of explaining that very thing. While telling the story of this wonderful trip and all the sites and memories I had, I found myself FULL of energy. Recounting the amazing blue water and unbelievable fun that I had made me feel like a million bucks. Suddenly the fatigue was gone, the aches were gone and I felt a renewed excitement like I had JUST GOTTEN BACK from this trip that I actually took 3-4 years earlier. What a wonderful experience... both the trip to Grand Cayman and telling the story today. I learned that "mind over matter" is real and that I REALLY need to have the pictures from my trip on hand AT ALL TIMES!

I got me a little happy today!!! They say that pictures do not replace being there, but they can certainly take you back ANY TIME you want!!! And the picture posted here is of another destination I had on that same vacation. COZUMEL: My Favorite Place On Earth!!!
