Traveling and the worrying mother

We will be traveling in the near future on a much needed vacation. While visiting family is wonderful, this will be a real vacation. I am being a typical mother and worrying about anything and everything that could go wrong (we are leaving our daughter with relatives for the first time for longer than a day). Nonetheless, both my husband and I are looking forward to getting away together. I know we will both miss the little one, but we will also be able to focus on each other for a change.

Prayer before Starting on a Journey
My holy Angel Guardian, ask the Lord to bless the journey which I undertake, that it may profit the health of my soul and body; that I may reach its end, and that, returning safe and sound, I may find my family in good health. Do thou guard, guide and preserve us. Amen.

Hi Cascia. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. We had a wonderful vacation and were able to spend time together relaxing. Although we missed our daughter, I definitely see the value such vacations to help strengthen the marriage. Blessings to you!
