Towards a Change of Scenery {Bigger Picture Moment}

Load up. Take stock. Drive away.
Away from routine and the indoors.
Away from screens, clocks and chores.

Load up. Take stock. And drive.
Drive towards a change of scenery.
Towards laughter and campfires and friends.
Towards fresh, forest air and long walks.
Towards sunshine, chirping birds and rest.

And this will be good. Good
for my exhausted, hard working hubby.
Good for me. Good for us.
No apologies, no guilt, no justifying.

It took me a while, but 
{Thank God!}
I no longer associate getting away
with running away. Or with laziness.
 I've learned to let go. To
really let go and let down.

Today we finish up, clean up
pack up and cook. Cause tomorrow
we load up - and drive away!
