November is alive and well in Australia and things are heating up. It is still hard to get used to the concept that November is hot and that Summer is approaching but it is more than welcomed after the chilly Winter that has just passed. In about 6 weeks time, I will be heading home to meet my baby nephew who consumes many of my thoughts these days. I can't wait to be home and to hold him and hug him. It's amazing that you can feel so much love for someone that you've never met. It's sounds weird, I guess but there is this inherent pull within me towards him. From the moment that he entered the world, I felt a swell in my heart. I look at his photos and I melt. It's weird. I have never been like that before but it is a welcomed change.
It makes me wonder though about people who are seemingly hard to the ways of the world or those who are emotionless. Have they just yet to have an experience to make them feel? Or, was something so devastating in their past that it ripped away the sense of simple joys? It's interesting but I want to hold on to the happiness that little Jayden has brought for as long as possible.
So, the big news in my life now is that I sit and wait. I wait to go meet my little Jayden, have a fun Christmas at home and then make an extraordinary trek to South America! I have put the final touches on everything and flights are booked, hotels reserved and tours planned! I will get to see Colombia and Peru and with a little bit of luck, I can have a quick day trip over to Brazil while in the Amazon. As much as I get frustrated and can be a smidge disgruntled, life is all good!
