embracing the last moments

Our trip to Germany is slowly coming to a close. One week from today, we'll get on a plane and begin the long journey back home.

About a week and a half into our stay here, I began to feel slightly homesick - something that is very rare for me.   I alternated between wanting to go home at that second and never wanting to leave Germany.

(I no longer feel that way, but in hindsight, I think it was due to the lack of sun. It was so gloomy and rather depressing for awhile...and with weather like that, well, I couldn't help but miss my bright, sunny, airy room, the sun, and my friends.)

But now in this last week of our time overseas, I've decided to embrace every little thing. Embrace the time I still have with family. Embrace sleeping in (I know I'm going to be bombarded with things to do when I get back).

I'm going to embrace the last moments.

Is there anything you're embracing the last moments of?


PS Tomorrow I'm leaving for Paris! Eek!
