Once upon a time, there were three friends, Vagablond, Jo Jo and Deb who met at bible study. We were raising a combination of 8 children, changing diapers, managing careers and families. We all moved through our lives putting family first, surviving divorces, deaths and illness, celebrating births, remarriages and being a survivor.
Our reconnection began when Jo Jo suddenly lost her husband. We made it a point after that to find mornings to meet for breakfast. It was a comfort and we realized that we were still able to make each other laugh. Women having supportive and good friends really does matter, it is about that connection that ranges from “we are so adorable” to “Ok – check my behavior on this- Am I being too _______????” Losing a girlfriend connection from the past and then rediscovering the love, camraderie, support and honesty you had is one of the great gifts of the Universe.
The idea to visit Disney together came from a conversation during one of our breakfasts. We were talking about vacations and how visiting Disney is always a thrill. Deb had a story about Disney at Christmas and how beautiful, fun and even spritual it was. I was shocked – in all of the marketing and commercialism around what Disney does I wondered how they would align to the politcal correctness that surrounds us and still bring the message of hope from Jesus’ birth.
How does Vagablond answer any question? Why Travel of course – and the trip planning began!#DisneyDecember
