Alaska -Here I Come

Very seldom do I go on really big trips, but I have been planning this one for almost two years. You see it was my 25th wedding anniversary in March, and this was gift that my husband and I had given to each other.  Now, please understand that my husband, bless his dear soul, is NOT a good traveler –and that’s probably an understatement.  And it’s not really the traveling, but more the preparation.  In fact, I have wondered if I could actually pull this particular trip off without a divorce or at the very least a major injury–from me to him! 

But the morning is finally here and if I can sit on my suitcase to close it, and get him to the MARTA park and ride, we might actually be on our way to a fabulous adventure! 

I will be gone for two weeks, but plan on exciting stories when I return.  Please pray for our safety, our children and a special prayer that we make it before I clobber my husband!

Give yourself PERMISSION to seek great adventures even in the face of adversities!

Great things are waiting!


About thepermissionlist

Hello, my name is Susan McMullen. I live in Marietta, GA and I am a professional speaker and registered nurse who has not only worked in direct patient care for 26 years, but I have also taken care of both of my parents, all while being married and raising three children. For 8 years, I provided care to my mother until her passing at home, surrounded by family and loved ones. After her death, my family and I moved in with my 70 year old father. For the next 15 years, until July 21, 2009, I orchestrated basic everyday needs along with financial matters, doctor appointments, administering medicines, and eventually made sure that my father’s ultimate wishes concerning life and death were fulfilled. Through the many years of taking care of others, I have become an expert at navigating through the medical maze, overcoming personal guilt and recognizing how important it is, whether in a hospital setting or at home, to take care of oneself if you are going to take care of others. I am on a journey to reclaim my love of life! You are invited to join me! Please share your own care giving stories! Together we'll laugh and cry as we find ourselves woven in the tapestries of each others lives! Together we'll learn to give ourselves PERMISSION to live and love! Great things are waiting! Susan McMullen
