Packing Up Our Troubles

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes! It was a Grand time had by all last night, and I thoroughly enjoyed being with my family and Ben.

I even was able to enjoy my meal because it was well tasty!

Mum and Erik wanted to try the strawberry margaritas, and Ben also convinced me that I should give it a whirl – so dad just ordered us a pitcher and by Jove it was WELL tasty and quite the thirst-quencher! Ben sure enjoyed one as well, and dad took a sip of Mum’s, but decided to have a couple Mexican ales instead of the margaritas!


And today, we all wanted to leave for the North Sea this evening after dinner, but dad insisted that we put in a hefty round of Study Mode studies since he said we most likely won’t be doing much studying this weekend!  I think he is dead-on right about that!

So we will have a pretty intense night of studies ahead of us, for certain.

Carel will be coming over later on to spend the night since we are planning on leaving well early tomorrow morning – well BEFORE dawn, according to Ben’s dad! But I don’t mind when we leave that early as it gets us up to the sea earlier and gives us a bit more time.


So, in a few short hours it will be time for all of us heading to the North Sea to pack up our troubles and get ready to cast them into the understanding waters. From there, we will listen and wait for various answers and solutions to the many dilemmas that have troubled and worried us this past week. It will be a release of our inner souls and minds, giving all to our wonderful North Sea – only to get back what she is willing – wisdom, knowledge, and a better understanding of life.

Thank you, our dear North Sea!

    I’m so happy your family and Ben could enjoy your birthday fiesta filled with tasty Mexican food and tangy Margaritas and ales — Ole!

    I well believe the North Sea will once again welcome you back. It’s permanence, grandeur, and steady rhythm embraces you and helps put your life in perspective. May the sea bring each of you what you need to reconcile and come to peace with the many dilemmas that you face. May it also bring you ever closer together as brothers, lovers, and friends. Oh great sea, please welcome these lads home once more!

    Hugs, Health, and Hope — Always Hope,

    AMAR SAYS: Thanks, Day. I know the Good Sea will do just that! :)

    I am reminded of an old song lyric that went something like this,”pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile.” So having done just that you’re off to the sea. There you all will let the mighty waves wash away those troubles – clearing your minds so that the calmer sea can serve as a wonderful talisman, allowing you to find solutions to troubling questions, sort through conflicting feelings and arrive at the best response to each of your problems.

    May each of you find the peace of mind you seek. May you leave the sea on Sunday with peace in your hearts and solutions to each of your problems in your minds.

    Healing Hugs of Hope for Each of You,

    AMAR SAYS: Thanks! ;)

    Glad to hear that you had good birthday with the family and Ben.
    Hope you all find the solutions you are looking for at the North Sea and I am sure you will all return fully refreshed and ready for the new week.I think that you had better advise your doctor the he should prescribe the North Sea as a medicine.
    Regards and hugs

    AMAR SAYS: Good idea, Ring! ;)

    Hope all of you have a restful, thoughtful time at the North Sea. I love Margaritas but without the salt on the glass rim. Very, Very tasty. Although I prefer the original Margaritas, which we call Ritas, over the fruit-flavored variety, any way they are lovely.
