Gatlinburg 2019 is now in the past. It exists for me only in my memory and in the photos I took while I was there.
I’m thankful for the chance to go, and I’m thankful to be back home in my own bed.
Did I get to do absolutely everything on my imaginary wish list for this trip? Close, but not quite. But then again, there’s always the next time, God willing.
It’s always a nice change of pace to get away from the normal routine for a day or two, sort of like hitting the reset button or doing a reboot.
It is true that you never fully appreciate the moments in your life until they become memories. I’m glad I have a few new memories to cherish in the days to come.
