A Visit With the Girls

I was blessed to have my daughters and nieces down to visit for a number of days, what a great time we had checking out some of beautiful New Brunswick.  It was like old times...all the girls hanging out together.  Hearing their chatter and laughter at night as I was in my room heading to bed made me smile...reminding me of home.

On the Tuesday we headed out to what I thought was the Fundy Trail Parkway, my husband and I had been there 3 years ago  and it was beautiful. Anyway, somehow I got mixed up and we ended up at Fundy National Park.   My heart sank as I realized we weren't where I thought we were going.  I know, how does a person mix that up but somehow I did.  

So here I thought I'd ruined the day because I had pictured the Fundy Trail Parkway and knew there were many beautiful lookouts and trails but with this park I didn't know where to go.  I was kicking myself on the inside.

We start driving through the park, my daughter was checking out the map and suggested a hike to a waterfall so we decide to do it. The hike is 2 1/2 km in at a steady decline and the same out except on an incline.  It was a beautiful hike through the woods and when we got to the waterfall it's gorgeous.  We spent about 20 minutes there taking pictures and enjoying the beauty and peace of being the only ones there.

Heading back we passed a number of families who were all headed to the waterfall.  As I was walking back, out of breath at times because of the steady incline :-) I was thinking about how I'd messed up in ending up at the wrong place.  But in the midst of it I realized that God still had something beautiful for us to enjoy and we were able to enjoy it before the crowds came...what  a blessing that was to us.  

The day that I thought I'd ruined or wasn't what I'd anticipated it to be was beautiful.
