With the pandemic, we’ve all been home for almost 3 years now. Confession: I’ve missed traveling to conferences for enhancement of my professional counseling knowledge. Travel has been a highlight my career seeing many cities and sights. A month ago, the news came that I would be traveling to La Jolla, California for a conference. Yes! I get to travel to a conference all rather than the multitude of conferences online during the pandemic.
We traveled on planes, trains, buses, Ubers, taxies and a rental car. We attended an international conference with people from all around the world. It was a rewarding 4-day conference with many speakers and differing perspectives. I am grateful for the rewarding professional experience.
Being away for 6 days, the trip was packed with evening excursions to restaurants and beaches. Arriving home took a full day of travel starting at 5:00 and getting home at 10:30 that evening. Arriving home has never felt this good. Greeted by my dog (who have been staying with my brother and his wife- thank you so much!), who was as crazy as me getting in. It is amazing to travel again. It also reminded me how much I love living in this beautiful part of the country. Sure, California is beautiful because it has been planted and manicured. Kentucky has a natural beauty and diversity like no other place on earth.
I am reminded of how great it is to live in a rural area. The traffic is manageable; rarely do we sit in stalled traffic, no stop at lights every block and commuter train track crossings. This experience has reminded me that there is no place like my home in Kentucky! I would never want to live any other place in the world. We are blessed to live here and call this home.
Remember my friends and readers, embrace, Psalms 127:1 “Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” Love God and All People. Amen.
