Volcanoes and Glaciers

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain

Tomorrow D and I set out on an adventure, just the two of us.  David turns 40 next week and this is his birthday present from me to him.  We are so in need of time together, alone, far from our day-to-day responsibilities and the demands of family life.  We need time together to rekindle our friendship and the love that binds us.  It feels that we have been so busy focusing on the girls and family life that we have forgotten that there was an "us".  The "us" is central to family life and we know that if we are strong then we can support each other whatever should happen in our day-to-dayWe, like every couple, need to work on the strong bond that already exists between us and never take each other for granted.  This time is for us... 

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
Jawaharal Nehru
