PERSONALLY YOURS: Impromptu Key West: Here’s looking at you, kid

Published: Friday, October 5, 2012 at 09:33 AM.

The trip was a fun and exciting spur-of-the moment adventure that I came away wishing I had embarked on long ago.

In spite of the adventure the trip provided, however, the best part was the time spent face to face with my child and sharing heart-to-heart thoughts and feelings. A price can't be placed on that. I believe in years to come, both of us will look back and remember when we shared a small handful of days together in Key West — just the two of us, walking, talking, shopping together and sharing thoughts and feelings. A precious memory was made.

All the components of this short, uncharacteristic-of-me trip falling into place were phenomenal. And more so as over dinner one of the nights when she shared that this would be the last time she would be sent to Key West. When she told me that, it sank in that this was a trip a higher power assisted with.

You only pass this way once — take the time to make a memory with those you love.
