It’s been a family joke all these years, but I can’t help noticing when I’m having a lot of these “Whose better than you/us/me” moments in my life.
And when I’m not.
I use this whimsical phrase as my touch-stone to help me stay on track in living my best life.
My recent trip to Greece created an on-going string of “Who’s better than me/us?” moments as Ralph and I hiked in the impressive mountains, swam in the pristine waters and ate fresh and delicious food.
We are continuing our sabbatical from day-to-day life as we had been living. But real life always creeps in.
Ralph, schooled as an engineer and possessed with a passion for building everything from our house to a better breakfast sandwich, is constantly “engineering” our lives to help keep us on track for adventure, excitement and away from financial ruins as he constructs an array of interesting projects for us to engage in and expertly handles all of our logistics. And me, a communications major and health advocate, maintains all relations with new friends and old, manages our stays in various places and is responsible for anything that involves food – shopping, cooking, restaurant choices, etc. Good to know those college educations are still of use.
