Day 2 Road Trip--Be Happy Self

Just waking up and we are in St. Augustine. We had rain on the way down, but it was sure fun. We stopped at an outlet that was calling our name. I got a couple of cute things and we ate at Wendy's. First class all the way. We may run by historic St. Augustine and then off to south Fla. I'll be back in my stomping grounds with the heat and humidity. God is good and He kept us safe. I have poison ivy and it is so much fun. Burn and hurt. Maybe it's a test. Only a test. I think I have never had it in my life and it waits until now when I'm going on a long trip and will be sitting in meetings for days on end. But it will be okay. My little mantra when things start going bad is "I'm not in prison,I'm not in intensive care, I'm not a hostage somewhere." That helps me. I also have a little thing that when something happens I say, "Well, if that's the worst thing that happens to me today I'll be alright." The Lord has been so good to me and I tend to not focus on all the good things so I have to remind myself. Well, we may be off in a little while to visit the great Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth. Later.

Ponce de Leon and Fountain of Youth? Please elaborate...I have no idea what these are. I am intrigued. Thanks.

p.s. I hope the poison ivy goes away fast...
