The good news does bring reality back to us though. We can no longer travel for extended periods – but that’s a small price to pay for Jon’s health. We tell ourselves we can always go on short trips or maybe in two years. But if there is one thing that this has taught us, it’s that plans will always get changed.
Disappointing as postponing our trip is, it just allows us to follow a different path for now. We’ve still got each other and another 8 months to enjoy here in Calgary before we have to decide anything. We can experience something else, which, while not as exotic as south America, might be just as wonderful.
