Lou reminds us to savour the moment, put your energy into what really matters (ie what you love to do and makes your life better) and accept/appreciate things as they are. Her mantra on this trip was:
" You CAN have it all - just not all at once!"
I am so thankful that the boys have adults like her to know and learn from. People who have chosen a different kind of life and are glowing with happiness. It's so healthy for them to understand that there are many roads to travel and many ways to live - here, overseas, on farms, moving around, no fixed address - and that they are all valid and equally 'real'! The more types of people we can meet and spend time with, the more open minded we become.....
We love you Lou!
