The Night Before .....

I have been doing this for a lot of years and many, many miles.  Still, the night before we head out on the first trip of the season, I am riddled with doubt.  What if we break down, what if we wreck, what if.........  It runs through my mind that it would be safer and more predictable if we just stayed home and played golf.

But tomorrow morning when we head out the driveway for faraway places, I know it will also be the same.  The doubts will disappear and the eager anticipation of the places and people we will see takes over.  Any what ifs will be dealt with if and when they occur and, in the meantime, we will be truly alive again.

I wouldn't have it any other way.
