The countdown continues. In the days remaining, I'm counting the things I'll miss about living in Korea. The mountains are on the top of that list. I love that I'm only a 10 minute walk from the base of a healthy hike. This 40-year-old body is God's temple. Though it can be painful (bad knees complain the entire way, "Are we there yet?) it's my duty to maintain it's integrity.
I couldn't do this when I had my daughter here. I would have had to carry her (which would have been good exercise for a greater warrioress than I.) Still, it might have been a nice half-day trip to take with her. We could have stopped frequently and talked about the importance of staying on the path, being watchful for stumbling blocks, testing our strengths and remaining steadfast. I'll remember that when I get back to the States; I think she would enjoy hiking, especially if we danced along the way.
God, I miss my baby. The video below illustrates what happens when I'm left to myself for more than 40 days.
