The Next Thing

To my son Tommy,

All good things must come to an end and so our vacation begins the wind down. There are tons of emotions from everyone that come flooding. Some are saddened by the pack up day. Some are worried or overwhelmed with the clean up. Some feel loss of the good times and others want to extend the vacation like squeezing the last drop from a lemon. Some are relieved to get home because large family vacations definitely do not scream relaxation.

But as we pack up and readjust to our daily life, I remain excited. And that is the challenge, to remain excited about the next thing to come. Attack the end of the vacation and the return to the daily routine with as much vigor as the beginning. Bring your funny stories and treasured moments and great memories with you from the vacation but leave everything else. Look forward to the next vacation but don't look too far forward and overlook the adventure of your daily life. Things end and that is how life is, but as they always say when one thing ends another begins. Hopefully the Frazier-Maggio OCNJ vacation will be in our circle of life for many years to come.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
