#A to Z Challenge–T


Travel Talk

Never is there a time that most holds to the term “captive audience” as traveling in the same car no reception. It could get very uncomfortable with the wrong traveling companions. But it becomes quite the most empowering time with those who are sensitive and caring. It has always been a time for my family to examine the most exciting of topics. Feeling the love in the vehicle, we take turns asking the group questions we might feel uncomfortable asking anyone else in the world. I think my son and daughter were honest and open to the conversation.

My personal question was: What do my adult children need/want from me as a mother now? It is a deep question for me. I read deeply and asked a million questions when I was pregnant or raising my offspring. But there are few books or examples out there now to emulate. I’d love my bloggy friends to help with this question. Anyone have some answers?

Meanwhile, if talk is the best thing to do while traveling through low radio/data reception areas, these people should have been the closest companions ever:

Or were there always distractions or other ways that families did to NOT communicate?

This is my attempt at the #AtoZChallenge. I think I am nearly caught up. (fingers crossed)

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

I’d love to come up with something unique here but my go to is water.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

Been drunk or smoked weed. I can say that I had tried an edible but maybe not enough to help in any way.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

There are a lot of things we need but our needs are met. I couldn’t ask for anything more than the love I have in my life already.

 

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

That’s a tough one. Sometimes I lay very still and hope sleep can find me. Sometimes I turn my Kindle on and continue reading. Sometimes I watch a very familiar movie like Pirate of the Caribbean so that if I drift off to sleep I won’t miss anything. Sometimes I get up and wander to the bathroom, just to walk the short walk brings a certain reality back and shoos away worries and possible nightmares.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I’m so grateful to have had the chance to see my family and friends this last week. And that fantastic road trip!

This week I’m looking forward to going to my Hugger Hats group and maybe make a trip to the library. I have to admit, though, it is good to be home and enjoy the quiet.
