July 2011 Intentions Journal Entry

This year, I am keeping three journals to track my 2011 intention, resolutions and one little word. Tonight I had a chance to update my intentions journal for July and August. My intention is to be "Fabulous at 50," and my journaling for July reads "In July, I was fabulous because I let my family fly off in all different directions, to all parts of the world and knew we would all come back together again, to the same place. Home."
Paul and I went to England; Clara went to Southern California; and Henry stayed here in Half Moon Bay. We all grew during our time apart but we did not grow  apart. And that's kindof fabulous, don't you think?
I'll feature my August page this weekend, with a story for Sian's Storytelling Sunday. Will you be joining in that party?

You've really reached a new stage with the kids starting to branch out and be more independent ... I remember that time in my life extremely well.

very kewl Rinda, isn't it great letting the kiddos go a bit at a time and seeing how they mature as they reach out into the world!

Sian said...

Yes, I think that's fabulous! It's a wonderful time, watching and encouraging them to be independent. I'm enjoying it too

Sounds like you all had fun apart and even more fun now you are back together. I so love what you do with your journal pages.

Independence is a great thing...but it's good to all get back together sometimes- I have both DH and DD home this weekend and am SO looking forward to spending some time together! Love your page!

Lovely journal page! How wonderful to visit England! Not sure I can sit in a plane that long! I won't get on a plane for a two hour flight! Can't stand that feeling! Glad you are all back on the home front!

What a great journal page. It is a great feeling to know that your children are moving on and becoming independent. It is a greater feeling when they return to the place where they are safe under the loving arms of mom and dad.

wow July was a traveling month wasn't it. Love the title of your journal intention, fabulous at 50. There are so many ways to feel fabulous.

Very nice journal page Rinda. I like that you keep so busy and do travel to other parts of the world. I don't think we have gotten any further than Arizona. We just don't travel. Great post.

Lovely page & wonderful journaling. Sometimes it's hard to be separated from family - I hope y'all enjoyed connecting and each had wonderful travel stories to share.

I'm planning to join in over at Sian's on Sunday - got my story in mind, but I need to get to work on it!!!

it sounds like this was a significant step for your family - the realization that you will always remain close even if you aren't always near.
