As the daylight peeks over the cemetery and the birds tweet hello, I greet the morning.
I say a prayer for this world, this day, and this heart.
The excitement seems to burst from my chest.
I am in Australia.
It hits me. Finally!
I feel as though I am on the other side of the world, 10,000 miles away from home.
And today he is coming!
Meeting me 10,000 miles across the world.
We will explore.
We will enjoy.
As we walk around the city, looking up at this marvelous place, we smile.
My feet feel lighter, despite the distance we have traveled.
The penguins chatter.
The cold whips our faces
As we stare out into this world.
This is wonderful.
Here is to a great holiday!
