That’s all that’s left in this trip that was scheduled to be a year long but really was supposed to last forever.
I’m not even sure what to do with that because really those days are going to fly.
It’s not that they won’t be good days.
We’re in PEI now and our visits through Eastern Canada have only deepened our love for our home country. You can’t help but fall in love with Canada all over again when you’re hanging around with the Maritimers.
And from here we’ll drive home in the 2012 Buick Enclave that has made all of us more comfortable through New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario.
But still none of us are quite sure what’s waiting at the end of those 10 days.
Will be settle back in to life as we knew it? Or will the effects of our year of meeting extraordinary people on the road worm its way into our life and make us act as radically different as we feel?
I expect it’ll be a bit of both.
For now, we’re trying not to think too hard about it.
What matters is that we’re coming home, that family and friends are anxiously awaiting our return and that we’re just as excited to see them.
And most importantly that the goals we set for this year have been realized beyond what we ever thought was possible.
We are a family stronger than ever. My boys are coming home with the knowledge that this planet isn’t nearly as big and frightening as many would have us believe.
And every one of us now believes that dreams come true and that it’s possible to soar.
For the next 10 days we’ll try to focus on that.
