We’re less than an hour away from embarking on our little adventure to Montenegro for the winter but, to be honest, I’m struggling to get my head round what we are doing. Part of me feels like we’re visiting family for a couple of weeks and part of me feels like we’re not going anywhere at all! I think the last few weeks have been some of the more stressful of my life. There has been so much to get ready (at work, in the house, to pack etc) that I haven’t had chance to enjoy the fact we now have the opportunity to do something I thought I could only dream of.
We’re spreading the journey over four days so that should give us a bit of a buffer and space to reflect I hope. I also hope for great family time and fun on the journey (which I guess is a small holiday in itself!) I’m so knackered though, that my prayer is that God will give me enough grace and good attitude to be a positive part of the family – he’s been with us so far in all our preparations and I know, if I’m open to him, he’ll help me say and do the right things and we’ll have a great time – not just for the journey but for the whole adventure once we get there too!
