Contentedness is a slippery concept. Just when I think I'm doing pretty well, something creeps in and throws me off track.

I have been really looking forward to our family trip to Thailand. We're leaving tomorrow and I have been counting down for months. It's the perfect place for us to go, lots of great scenery, perfect for families, good hiking and other outdoor activities, paradise for us!

Then, on my favorite day of the year, Easter, I take a tumble. Nothing bad, but enough to rip a ligament in my ankle and set me down for a little while. I was so frustrated and discouraged at the fact that "my" vacation wouldn't be the same.

The more I think about it, the more I realize how it's not a big deal. At the end of the day, I will still be spending a week with my family in an amazing place. I've got three books I want to read, tons of time watching my girls enjoy life and drinking smoothies.

I don't want to get caught up feeling sorry for myself. Being in Thailand is amazing enough. Getting to be there on vacation with my family is all I need. I'll let you know how it goes!

I feel your pain brother!! I tweaked my ankle today (not as bad as yours by the looks of it), but hey I am just trying (probably unsuccsefully) to make you feel better.

Miss you guys, have a good vacation!
