None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human
birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek
to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
A passport, as I'm sure you know, is a
document that one shows to government officials whenever one reaches a border
between countries, so the officials can learn who you are, where you were born,
and how you look when photographed unflatteringly.
Oh my Gosh! How true is the above?
Not that I am a terribly photogenic person anyway, but seriously, what is it with driver license and passport cameras?!
I have this deep seated belief that they were invented specifically to take even the most gorgeous person and turn them into a candidate for a troll calendar.
My passport picture is horrid. It doesn't help that I am blind in one eye and have a droopy eyelid. Looks like I'm trying to "wink" at the person taking the picture and failing miserably! Not to mention it was NOT a good hair day!
Oh well ... it will still get me where I need to go which is to Japan to see my daughter whom I have not seen, except for Skype - Thank God for Skype - for over 2 and a half years
YAY!!!!! I'M SO EXCITED!
My bags are packed!
My phone is charged with a backup
My camera is charged - must take many pictures!
My Ipod is charged (important to have music for long flights with bored adults and small children!) I even remembered to put all my upcoming post on autoshare for Google+ Yay Me!
Did I mention I was excited?!
(shameful secret time - I've had my bags mostly packed for almost a month now!)
So I'm off into the wild blue yonder for an awesome visit and adventure with my daughter! See you all on the flip side! (HUGS) Cara
