It was a blessed trip with ample time for shared stories and laughter, but it was wonderful to return to the Port of Seattle and step foot on solid ground. The high waves of 12' or more rocked the ship mercilessly every day of our trip.
Upon disembarking, hubby and I headed to the Spokane area of Washington to visit with my brother and his family for a few days. I'm the eldest of the crew, and this brother is #5. Again, we shared stories, enjoyed their garden, and talked of a family reunion in 2025. If you haven't guessed, my extended family is the size of a small city, and we have to plan far in advance to arrange for accommodations. 😊
We're all doing much better now, but this new variant is a demanding bugger, so take good care of yourselves. ❤️
Writers are inspired by almost anything. The smallest detail can capture our imagination and prompt a story. With The Gift, it was an emotion that sparked the story. That's my hint. 😊
