traveling companions


I am grateful for my guys. My husband and son, my perennial traveling companions. Oh, the miles we've travelled together, over the last couple of years. Countless flights and subways, days filled with maps and occasional mishaps. They patiently wait for me to capture my photographs as we wander along and give me a gentle nudge to keep me moving. Sometimes they go off on their own, as they did this weekend, wandering ahead of me in this historic cemetery, as I read the tombstones of those who lived and died many years past. Looking up ahead of me this day, I was filled with gratitude for them, the best of traveling companions.

There is something special about the memories we create when we travel. They become links of the chain that holds our lives together, unique from the repetition of our daily lives. Something as simple as a walk on a dusty road or a nap on the airplane, as pmaelee captured below, become elevated to special stories that we tell and retell of our travels together.

Lucky me, to have such companions by my side for journeys near and far through life. I hope and wish the same companionship for you.

thank you, kat, for selecting my shot. my being at home with the children certainly makes our trips welcome disruptions to our regular routine. oh, and that tree at the end of the road is just gorgeous! thanks again, all you lovely muses, for having me on the site today! what a way to make my day!

Such a wonderful post! I treasure the memories of travels with my family, both as a child and as a parent. "Links in the chain that holds our lives together" -- beautifully expressed.
