Today’s NaBloPoMo theme is PASSION! After giving it a lot of thought I’ve considered a lot about my passion in different times of my life. I have a number of topics that I have enjoyed and spent a lot of time on. Most of the time when my children were in high school I would say my passion was their sports or their activities. I would get totally wrapped up in what they were doing. I didn’t work so their entire lives were my entire life. I home schooled them. I took them wherever they wanted and needed to go.

But then they graduated from high school at the same time and I was lost. Suddenly they both moved to college and all at once my car sat still and I had no where to go. So I needed some new passion in my life. For the first few months I did nothing but lay around and think about it. Then it came to me…my husband has a job where he travels a LOT. For our entire family life it has always been a source of contention because I had been left as a “married single parent” and daddy had lost a lot of the children’s games and activities. But I realized that now that I didn’t have anything to hold me at home I could actually travel with him.

So we agreed that I would plan to travel with him once a month. And I have the traveling bug. I’ve been some incredible places with him. I won’t bore you with my traveling tales and hundreds of pictures. But here area just a few. Enough to tell you that my new passion is EXPLORING THE WORLD with my husband!!
